Abstract

Fiona Fell's ceramic work offers up figures in clay that give priority to the internal gesture, contemplating the emotive forces that determine life's destiny on both a grand and minute scale. Working with Lyndall Adams, since 2005, Fiona Fell collaborates with Adams to find connection in the installation of reload: one night stack at the Grafton Regional Gallery (May to July 2011). Here vitrified clay figures reflect in the surfaces of polished aluminum and are absorbed by transparent glossy plastic. Fell explores a process of collaboration where the procedures of art making are shared, interrupted, redesigned and re-negotiated as part of the sustainability of her practice.
