Opening Reception: ‘A Living Line’

  • Fri 24 February 2023
  • 6 – 8 pm

Join us to celebrate the opening of ‘A Living Line’ at Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset featuring artist-makers Nancy Fuller, Hayley McCrirrick, Takahashi McGil and Luke Eastop.

The exhibition reflects an intimate, meditative approach to making, with a focus on color, tone and texture. Explorations in wood, textile and clay reveal subtle relationships between each of the artist-makers and their personal sources of inspiration.

Deep connections to place and landscape emerge in the works in clay by ceramicist Nancy Fuller and the rich colours of the Cairngorms are vividly evoked in the textile pieces by Hayley McCrirrick. Family heritage guides the ceramic practice of Luke Eastop and Takahashi McGil, which in turn, relates to the dual cultural influences of Nancy Fuller. The makers celebrate traditional techniques whilst evolving their material knowledge to create a timeless, yet contemporary narrative.

A Living Line’ is on view at Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset from Saturday 25 February – Saturday 15 April 2023.

Please be advised that photographs will be taken at this event for use on the Hauser & Wirth website, social media and in other marketing materials.
