Martin McWilliam - The Vessel & Its Image
Martin McWilliam, previously in residency at The Banff Centre, is our feature artist for July.
Ceramic sculptures have arrived into the gallery with McWilliam's classic trompe-l'oeil effects, which deceive the eye and demand a second look.
Successful trompe-l'oeil occupies a very shallow space yet persuades the viewer there is volume. McWilliam works with these effects and constructs multidimensional ceramic 'vessels' that are exciting and always command a ‘second take.”
