Confected, Borrowed and Blue...an installation by Paul Scott
Saturday 17 November 2015 – Sunday 7 February 2015. Free Entry
Blue and white china is often displayed at home for its decorative qualities; as Paul Scott remarks, “it is a visual language that many people are familiar with.” In Paul Scott’s hands, domestic ceramics mutate into subversive comments on our life and times. His manipulation of familiar motifs like the Willow Pattern gives his work special resonance and broad appeal. He is an expert on printed industrial tableware and his appropriation of its traditional patterns as vehicles for political messages has made his work unmistakable. Once seen their effect is unforgettable.
Exhibition organised by The Holburne Museum
