Reverent Extrusions
30 July - 31 August 2019

Jess Lyons

Reverent Extrusions looks to re-contextualise the vitrine showcase gallery as a display or archival cabinet like that within a traditional museum collection, displaying cylindrical ceramic sculptural objects.

Jess Lyons is a ceramics-based artist (currently studying the Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours at RMIT). Her practice is concerned with influences of inherited craft skills and scientific wisdom that have been passed down through her family. Transference from past to present - seepage between spaces and time - fluxus between physical states are explored in Jess’s most current research and projects. Jess’s motivation is driven by an innate desire to articulate the ‘self’ via the ceramic process - focusing on glaze development and the transformation of materials.
