Inherited Vessels
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 14 8-11PM
Runs Until: April 28, 2016.

In this collection of works, Sarah Munro builds on the rich history of craft. Images of ceramic vessels each with their own unique cultural and temporal history have been digitally reproduced and reformed, molded like clay to create something new. Dissecting and reassembling seemingly disparate forms ultimately creates a unified whole as Munro layers images one on top of the next. Inherited Vessels explores the relationships between fine art, domestic decoration and artifact. Much like the history of craft itself, Munro draws on many sources to inform these works. Munro's work further engages with the history of craft by prompting questions on what effects visual culture and cultural determinism have on the kind of craft produced for domestic spaces and, in turn, how social climates effect the collective taste of Western middle class society.
