Finding Direction: An exhibition of ceramic art

Finding Direction: An exhibition of ceramic art by Nicola Dench at Thistle Hall Gallery 6-11 Oct

As you read this hundreds of people are on the move, making a dangerous and unpredictable journey in the hope of a better life. Finding Direction uses the boat as a metaphor for hopes and dreams, alongside nautical references, to explore the space we occupy between where we have been and where we are going.

In 2005 Nicola Dench saw an image in the newspaper which she used as the basis for a painting. The image was of a boat dragged up on the shore, the boat had been used by refugees to cross from North Africa to Europe. Ten years on and the situation has escalated to the worse refugee crisis since WWII.

Finding Direction is on at Thistle Hall gallery on the corner of Cuba and Arthur st from Tues 6 Oct to Sunday 11 Oct 10am – 6pm. Nicola will be on sight each day working with clay and available to answer discuss the work.
