Archived: EMILY SIDDELL ELAPSE

FHE Project is delighted to present Elapse - an exhibition of new works by Emily Siddell. Auckland born and bred (b. 1971), Siddell is one of New Zealand's most accomplished and innovative glass and ceramic artists. She has exhibited since 1990 in both solo and many group exhibitions and her works are held in many private collections and public institutions such as The Dowse, Auckland War Memorial Museum and The Museum of New Zealand - Te Papa Tongarewa.In this new series, Siddell continues to explore and interpret the many possibilities of traditional adornment and its evolution as a contemporary sculptural object.

Emily Siddell is inspired by the seasonal growth and cyclic changes in her sub tropical Auckland garden. This cyclic nature seen so clearly in the environment also parallels Siddell's interest in the idea of recurrence, which is apparent in fashion, costume and design across many cultures and throughout history. A universality that reveals a shared desire for the expression of aesthetics - the desire to bring grace to the functional.

"This work is inspired by my parent's garden. I love the way, as spring approached, The garden burst to life with fresh new leaves, blossoms and Tui.
