After curating the 2009 exhibition 'Three By One' at the Crafts Study Centre, Alison Britton is returning to the University for the Creative Arts in Surrey for her 'Life and Still Life' exhibition. It runs from 16 October to 15 December 2012.
In this exhibition Britton will show a selection of objects from her own 'study collection' of other people's work - paintings, photographs, drawings, pots, tableware - as a framework for a group of her new pots, mainly in red clay, which she started to use after a residency at the Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park in Japan in 2010. These will be shown alongside some of her older work.
“Everyone has things, but artists do something else perhaps with the objects they own, in using them to think with”- Alison Britton
