Victoria Pitel, figurative ceramic sculpture
Victoria investigates what it means to inhabit the human body. Her figurative forms, constructed from paper clays using traditional ceramics techniques, allow for the exploration of presence and the examination of self; where boundaries of the psychological and physiological become indistinct, where language becomes rooted in intuition.
These concepts underpin her work and the way in which creative processes may give expression to ideas. Victoria examines how one’s sense of the inner self may be carried or reflected in the physical; a visual representation of internal dialogue and states of being.
Odd Nurdrum, Cristina Cordova and Rathbone Kelly Garrett are inspirational with practical research and exploration ongoing as Victoria successfully engages in existing dialogue within the field of figurative ceramics.
