Annie Attridge

Annie Attridge uses the ornamental and seductive qualities of porcelain to explore the Baroque traditions of figurative decorative sculpture. Her works are fused with private dramas of desire and longing, containing underlying waves of passion, sinuous love triangles and romantic archetypes combined with comic symbolism. Exploiting the medium’s potential to be modelled, stretched and decorated with colored glazes, Attridge creates entangled, orgiastic and amorphous scenes that resonate playfully with sensual pleasures. The work itself becomes both object and a sign of desire. Recent solo exhibitions include “Should of Could of Would of”, MOCA London, London, UK (2016) , “Wanderlust”, Aysa Geisberg Gallery, New York, NY (2013), “Hearts of Oak”, Asya Geisberg Gallery, New York, NY (2011). Group exhibitions include “Nature Morte”, Guildhall Museum, London (2017-2018), “In Your Face” , Salisbury Art Centre, UK (2017), “Creekside open”, The art in perpetuity Trust, selected by Jordan Baseman & Alison Wilding, UK (2017).
