Maryanne Nicholls' drawings and ceramics explore movement through the human body. She often draws on classical sculpture, with this current work taking inspiration from the procession carved into the Parthenon Frieze. In both mediums, her figures take on a fragmentary nature. By cutting, slicing and pouring glazes onto the raku fired ceramics and the gestural use of indian ink and watercolour on her collaged drawings she hopes to give a feeling of fragility to her work.
