"My figurative practice explores liminality, performativity and the discomfort around sexuality during adolescence. Slouching with silky limbs, captured in staccato poses, The Shakers are a collection of colourful ceramic players. Each character is disguised in masquerade and costume, their gender ambiguous, shown to be free, law-less and without boundaries. Be-WILD-ered. They quite literally shake, both as an expression of trauma and as a way to find relief. With reference to animal hybrids and archetypal imagery they mirror the transformational nature of fired ceramic, a medium used to suggest narratives of metamorphoses and restoration."
