Lund Gallery – an exhibition
Today we were at a new gallery to see the work of Ruth King, Peter Baker and Alex Cooper. We were easily tempted to buy one of Ruth King’s pots –
– and intrigued by the work of York based, Peter Baker (no relation), who uses marble dust and plaster to coat the faces of individual house bricks, with striking and thought-provoking results.
I use the brick for it’s symbolic and metaphorical references as much as it’s sound engineering qualities. In fact I see it as representing the building blocks of life, and as a means of forming our cultural and social identity.
