Library Shelf Location 18.WILS
Publication Date 2008
Description In MIRROR Elaine Wilson explores themes of self and the ‘other’ in a series of ceramic sculptures and collages. Using the language of ornamental sculpture and figurines she retraces received notions of women and femininity. This book was associated with the following solo exhibitions: The Hatton Gallery, Globe Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne, Gift gallery Vyner Street, London. 'Elaine Wilson’s work is gritty, uncomfortable and probing. It asks questions about who we are and how we see ourselves within the confines of our commodified society. Subtle, complex and multilayered, it sneaks up on us to take us by surprise, lulling us with its decorative beauty, whilst pulling a punch like an iron fist in a very elegant velvet glove.' - Sue Hubbard
