Gin Durham at The Other Art Fair | Ceramics evolved through tradition and forged in experience and emotion

Gin Durham‘s work is a very beautiful and clever kind of social commentary. Her ceramic pieces are, at first appearances, very ornate objects – floral, beautifully crafted, and nostalgic. Upon closer inspection there is a clever tension crafted, incorporating toy-like sculptural forms plucked straight from childhood, Gin then evolves the emotions associated with these almost universal object, playing their complexities to craft something very clever from ceramic…

Evocative of childhood, but with all the social tensions of adulthood shaping the pieces, the works becoming an expression of inner mental anguish and emotion. The pieces intrigue because the sense of a sinister loss of innocence lurks, but all the while, they retain a certain innocence and fun. Treading this careful line, Gin produces works that are provocative but which err just on the right side of light-hearted, evolved through tradition and forged through experience and emotion.
