Everard Read London artist Lucinda Mudge features in House & Leisure

April 25, 2017

"My vases tell stories and I use them as a reference to the human condition, the idea that we are on repeat. Also, with a vase, you can't see the whole picture at once. The images on the back will always be hidden, but we know it is there. This is a reference to the way we live - we choose not to see even though we know it's there."

Everard Read London is proud to present a collection of 22 new ceramic vases by Lucinda Mudge, in her first UK solo exhibition entitled The Wolf is Always Near. The vases take inspiration from a variety of references ranging from art history to cartoons, pop songs, fabric designs and Art Deco vase patterns. Each vase is produced over a year, using hand-mixed glazes and stains.

Colbert Mashile: Truth or Dare at Everard Read Cape Town until 7 May 2017.
