Nathalee Paolinelli Ikebana Orb - Small Metallic Tray

Vancouver based artist. 

Favouring neither the formal nor the functional, Paolinelli embraces an amateur approach to the medium of clay.

This consciously naïve logic makes each object unique, but it also strikes up subtle conversations with artists as varied as Lucio Fontana, Asger Jorn, Franz West and Mary Heilmann.

For Paolinelli, the repetitious acts of rolling, shaping, patterning and painting slabs provide a ground on which these conversations can happen, but also where accidents, gravity, drips and slips are allowed to run strident once they enter the kiln.

It is this negotiation between what the artist wants and what the material wants that provides each work with its own precarious and poetic tension.
