Oriel Myrddin Gallery, Carmarthen’s featured maker for May and June is artist, Élodie Alexandre.
Élodie Alexandre grew up in France coming to the UK about ten years ago, she studied for both her BA course in Ceramics and MA in Ceramics at Cardiff School of Art and Design. She was selected by Gallery Manager, Meg Anthony as her MAStar for Axisweb in 2013.
She said: “My work investigates the relationship between drawing and making in ceramics, at a point of oscillation between the two and three dimensional. The objects that arise from exploring this territory of the in-between can be seen as multiple translations that allow lines to be reinvented and visual conversations to emerge.
"The images used are based on personal memories of everyday objects and the emotions attached to them. Creating space for discovery and meandering, they evoke something belonging to the subtle and the felt and map a territory that is mysterious yet familiar, personal yet universal.”
