Artist Talk: Moraig McKenna

April 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Join artist Moraig McKenna as she discusses her inspirations, processes and exhibition Surfacing.

About the Exhibition: Surfacing is a solo exhibition by Gundaroo artist Moraig McKenna. The exhibition runs at Canberra Potters from 21 March to 5 May 2024.

What’s on the surface is a manifestation of what lies within. Like human skin or a landscape; surfaces map experience and the passage of time. The surface tells the story of an object through its marks and scars.

The surface of my work is marked and textured, layered with slip and glaze, salt and ash. Through the process of making and firing some layers are revealed and some are obscured. These surfaces tell of my experience working with clay, my response to the material and of the ceramic traditions that influence and inform my work.

The mark of my hand is evident in this work. For me these marks are a connection between my hand as the maker and the hand of the imagined user.”
