'RAY CHURCH BRINGS THE CLASSICAL POTTERY OF ANCIENT GREECE UP TO DATE WITH SATIRICAL SOCIAL COMMENTARY AND URBAN IMAGERY'

STATEMENT

THE INSPIRATION  FOR MY WORK CENTRES ON THE AESTHETICS OF CLASSICAL GREEK POTTERY BOTH  FORMALLY AND FIGURATIVELY. THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS TO APPROPRIATE THIS STYLE AND ALLOW NEW IDEAS TO DEVELOP THROUGH USE OF PLAYFUL DIALOG BETWEEN THE CONTEMPORARY  AND THE CLASSICAL.

I LIKE THE NOTION OF DRAWING PARALLELS BETWEEN HISTORICAL NARRATIVES AND 21ST CENTURY SOCIO-POLITICAL SITUATIONS AND THE AMUSING SUBVERSIVE IMAGERY CONCEIVED FROM THIS COLLABORATION  OF THE TIMES.

Raymond Church was born in Hastings, England in1978. He graduated from Carmarthen School of Art in 2000. In 2015 his work was represented in the Exhibition of Contemporary Ceramics at the Biennale de la Ceramique in Andenne, Belgium.

In 2016 Raymond showcased his work at Ceramic Art London. He continues to develop his work from his studio located in Gower, Wales.
