Ole!Regular price $450.00
Ole! is a fusion of individually sourced emblematic ceramic pieces exploring this iconic aspect of Spanish culture as seen through foreign eyes.
The work churns with colour and energy, signifying the challenge not only in the romanticised battle between the matador and bull themselves, but also the clash between cultural ideologies and traditional artistic concepts.
Ole! is slip cast in white earthenware with mid-fire to low temperature glazes usually found in low art and commercial ceramics. Such glazes rarely appear in galleries or fine art works. Ole! represents the accessibility of mass production for the ordinary consumer.
Ole! continues themes in Sophi’s work in providing a commentary on the everchanging contextual environment, layering historical themes with modern reinterpretations, and the re-purposing of historical ceramics.Dimensions: 26.8 x 29 x 22 cm
