Kirsten Coelho presents a new body of work in which ideas—both metaphoric and real—of journey, transformation and longing are explored through porcelain.
Looking to Homer’s ancient Greek epic The Odyssey, the poetry of modern Greek poets George Seferis and C.P Cavafy, and to the poems of Emily Dickinson, Coelho’s work is an exploration of forms that hint at, and find their origins in, the architecture and domestic objects of Ancient Greece and Rome. Columns, cups, vases, bowls are assembled vignettes that shape narratives of social and material culture, history, and the personal, telling stories of past and present through the allegorical potential and power of the object.
