I’d never been to Beverley Art Gallery but went because Ilona Sulikova was taking part in an exhibition entitled “Living Land: Ceramics and Sculpture”, which finishes on 10th September 2016.

I was introduced to Ilona’s work via college where she came to talk about her experiences as a potter.  I like her work, the balance between the sculptural form and the decoration.  I find it all the more interesting given that she relies on the unpredictable method of rake firing.  Please take a look at her website.

There were two other women ceramicists in the exhibition, Marie Lofthouse with very flowing,  sort of “waves on end”, and Pam Davies whose work in clay and stone references animals whose plight has been affected by human action.

 

The exhibition is in part along the centre of the permanent gallery space, which is mostly hung with paintings by local artists Fred and Mary Ewell.  Different time frame but overall I preferred their work to York’s local artist William Etty: Prefer content, composition, and execution.
