|Maura Doyle at CUAG, Ottawa.|
In various handmade stoneware sets on custom-built supports, Doyle contemplates the vessel, a hollow form with a hole, and explores how we use, represent, and display it. She also demonstrates how rich in metaphor the vessel is: pots have been written about by poets and writers for thousands of years. Besides her own pottery, Doyle chose a number of pre-Columbian pots from Carleton University’s collection to be displayed as well – an amazing juxtaposition!
These photos were taken during the opening of the CUAG summer exhibitions on May 2nd, 2016. What an exciting show!
