The Annual CoCA Lecture 2016
The 2016 Annual CoCA Lecture delivered by Christie Brown – Casting About: Re-searching Through Practice.
Throughout her long career as a figurative ceramic artist, Christie Brown has explored ideas about identity and self-knowledge, seeking continuity and connection through history and mythologies. Alongside her three-dimensional clay sculpture, she is developing her drawing as a parallel form of expression and communication.
In this artist’s talk she will trace how the content of her ceramics has been informed by a range of references, from archaic figures to dolls and puppets, while at the same time exploring the connections between these objects and the narratives that are emerging in her drawings, and how the relationship between sculpture and drawing are contributing to her visual language.
The lecture is generously supported by the Friends of York Art Gallery and the Northern Potters Association.
