For this special collaboration with the schauraum multipleart, Clare Goodwin made a new ceramic wall piece. It comprises over 400 individual hand-cut and glazed ceramic ‘whispers’ – baked slices of painterly forms – into a single wall work. In this new work, she refers to compositions of classical modern art, including specifically the work by Pablo Picasso – Guernica, 1937. Clean of form, these individual ceramic pieces in monochromatic and subdued tones, collectively create a pictorial vista, allowing narrative and poetic possibilities to arrive through the process of abstraction. Essentially it operates much like a painted image, if one that materialises over a fractured ceramic surface.
