About the Artist – Christie Brown
AWARD exhibitor, British Ceramics Biennial 2021
Christie Brown is an artist based in London and Emerita Professor of Ceramics at the University of Westminster. Her figurative practice is informed by our relationship with objects and the significance and relevance of museum collections and archaic artefacts to contemporary art. Exploring the relationship between archaeology and psychoanalysis, her work references the mythology, narrative and symbolism associated with clay. She often presents her work through site or theme-specificity and her making method of press-moulding allows her to explore the nature of repetition though installation and series. Recent work has focussed on the division and isolation caused by current events while ongoing projects examine the connection between drawing and sculpture within a tableau scenario.
