Internationally renowned ceramic artist Owen Rye presents Abstractions: an exploration of abstraction in ceramic sculpture and photography. Far removed from his public reputation as a woodfirer (there isn't a vessel to be seen!). Abstractions marks a turning point in Rye's artistic journey. “For the past fifteen years I have made close-up photos of old machinery, looking for abstract images. From around a thousand, I have selected eighteen, from pure abstraction to suggestions of old machinery parts and faded signwriting. The other part of the exhibition involves ceramic sculptures, again abstract in nature, not intended to have any reference to anything specific. I have always played with sculpture as a sideline to my better-known work. This is my first exhibition where it features prominently. Abstractions includes a mix of works completed over a number of years.”
