Kathryn Ross’s Sculpture is object-based, always with some kind of narrative, sometimes incorporating found objects as well as constructing her own. 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.
There are two connecting elements to the work in the exhibition: How we collectively as humans disregard the natural environment we occupy and how we identify ourselves.
Kathryn Ross will be making a piece of work on site as well as exhibiting sculpture. The piece is a collaborative piece working with local schools and others. To participate in the Little House Project follow the link below.
