Henrietta MacPhee, United Kingdom
Henrietta MacPhee is a British artist whose practise is centred in clay. She graduated from City Lit in 2017 with a Diploma in Ceramics and works from her studio in South London.
Her work has been selected for a number of prestigious shows in the UK including ‘Artworks’ organised by the Barbican Arts Group. In the summer 2019, she has been invited to present her work at the International Ceramics Festival in Aberystwyth, Wales.
Modelling by hand and painting on the clay she creates a language that blends the visual and tangible to create entertaining illusions and a sense of complexity that traverses the border between 2D and 3D.
Through a fresh child-like perspective of the world, she portrays scenes of poetic tenderness and humour, interweaving metaphors for embracing life’s diversity of peoples and their cultures. It is playful, representing an innocent yet thought provoking relationship with the material form.
