Mixed Marriage(s): Ceramics by Philip Eglin
13 May - 10 July 2011
This solo show of work by leading ceramic artist Philip Eglin will be one of the highlights of 2011. Laden with references to an unpredictable breadth of sources from religion to football, from medieval woodcarving to contemporary packaging, Eglin’s work has the power both to provoke emotion and to challenge. He seeks to achieve “...a balance between the high and the lowbrow, the reverent and the irreverent, the raw and the subtle, the sophisticated and the crude”.
Eglin was born in 1959 and trained at Staffordshire Polytechnic and the Royal College of Art. His work can be found in national and international museum collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum, National Museums of Scotland, Edinburgh and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.
