Jane Millar’s work has made a space shift to wall-based ceramics! The pieces she makes allude to, without necessarily representing, meteors, balloons, moons, planets, climbing wall footholds, slingshots and dummys.
The planetary forms express speeding dreamscapes as object, compromised and vitrified in the production of the work. Pushed and cut holes reference the practice of releasing energy from the interior of the human head, through opening the skull. The unseen interior shifts beyond a material exterior of vitrification.
The works question individual consciousness, as not contained, but illusory and shifting. The production of the work pushes artistic practice in ceramics into new territory, develops new skills in making, and allows contemporary ceramic work to operate in a new context and function of enquiry.
