A solo exhibition of new work by sculptor Kathryn Ross, exploring both how we collectively treat the natural environment and how we identify ourselves.
Kathryn Ross’s sculpture is object-based, always with some kind of narrative, sometimes incorporating found objects as well as those she has made. She works with a wide range of processes including casting in cement and clay, sewing and construction.
The human condition is the overlying theme; social, political and personal. This new body of work explores children’s toys as a parallel to our adult world. The dolls house is particularly fascinating in its miniature representation of the ‘perfect’ house but also represents the most fundamental human need for shelter and a home. Here it becomes an analogy for how we treat our world and each other.
During the show, Kathryn Ross will be making a collaborative piece working with local schools and others called the ‘Little House Project’. She will be continuing this project in the gallery space. To participate follow the link below.
