Carol Murphy's latest exhibition is characterised by a sense of play featuring diminutive, free-standing figurative works sculpted in ceramic.
The themes explored are slightly autobiographical, referencing Murphy's childhood memories and present day experiences of life as a left handed girl. She has awkwardly made her way in the world despite feeling completely hopeless at doing so many things! There is a self-depreciating sense of humour evident in these works with Murphy's ability to look at life?s absurdities and laugh along with a sense of fun.
These works are the embodiment of ideas first presented in the form of comic pen and ink drawings by the artist in the late '70s and early '80s and will form the basis of more new works in the future.
