julia bailey evolves

Julia Bailey is working on a Masters Degree in Visual Arts at the Camberwell College of Arts in London.  Curious about containing organic forms inside neutral spaces, Bailey created a set of ceramic forms inspired by plant elements, but decidedly fantastical.

The young artist is evolving, much like the wall installations from her series, Evolve, which started as a collection of plant structures and over time has grown to include birds perched out on ceramic limbs.  Groupings of several individual sculptures work well as colorful statements for a blank wall and I particularly like the way Figs follows the progression of a flower from bud to blossom.

I am particularly fascinated with ideas of growth and containment which is inspiring a series of works that appear to be growing inside the space. Each piece is an invention of fantasy; with combinations of naturalistic elements creating new and original objects.
