Bluecoat Display Centre will deliver a unique free artist event to coincide with the EU Day of Creativity on 21st March with ceramicist Adam Buick. This is linked to our forthcoming Equinox exhibition, curated by one of our supporting gallery staff;
Adam Buick is a Pembrokeshire based ceramicist and conceptual artist who also works with photography and film. Adam will give a demonstration of his making during which there will be an opportunity to ask him questions about his work and practice. This will be followed by the opportunity to view a couple of his time lapse films and the afternoon will culminate with the chance to chat to Adam informally back at the Display Centre’s Equinox exhibition
Before his training in ceramics, Adam studied archaeology and anthropology. Hence, his aim is to incorporate elements from the landscape into his works. Adam makes white porcelain moon jars, a Moon Jar is an ancient Korean form originally made from plain white porcelain. Adam was so inspired by this pure form that he now uses it as the composition for his work. He incorporates stone and locally dug clay into his work to create a narrative, one that conveys a unique sense of place.
“My work uses a single pure jar form as a canvas to map my observations from an ongoing study of my surroundings. Landscapes have inspired artists for generations but for me a landscape has to be felt. With my site-specific work I too am venerating the landscape.” – Adam Buick
