Wolverhampton Art Gallery is delighted to be working with Charlotte Hodes to commission an ambitious, large-scale installation that will take the form of a 12-metre long ceramic frieze.
The visually powerful new work will consists of 122 individual wall-mounted ceramic pieces, arranged to create a single image that combines elegant historic patterns with contemporary and digital imagery. The work forms part of a new exhibition at the Gallery this Summer and will be shown alongside Hodes’ existing works. These include a collection of intricate papercuts as well as a table top installation of over 350 plates, which demonstrate the artist’s playful, yet challenging approach to the aesthetic potential of domestic objects, both past and present.
In this video Charlotte talks about her work and how it crosses the boundary between fine art and craft practice.
