Home Truths

PEER

03 March - 22 April

Starting with found transferware ceramics produced over the last 250 years, Paul Scott works onto the scenes and imagery that are the hallmark of this industrially produced tableware, and offers new narrative interpretations.

Polite society would sip soup from bowls decorated with idyllic or exotic landscapes, such as this bowl from the Syria Series, the cultural references being rendered anodyne by their quotidian domestic use. For Scott, however, this cultural artefact becomes a pertinent context for more brutal contemporary readings.

Scott works onto industrially produced ceramic tableware as a collagist might, re-purposing these cultural artefacts in such a way as to offer new narrative interpretations that encourage re-examination. Drawing from his encyclopaedic knowledge of and fascination with the material, he alters, erases and adds new images to the highly detailed scenes and patterns of these domestic items, whereby the imagery is ruptured and recalibrated for a contemporary world

Home Truths will include over 40 works by Scott, plus a range of ‘ready made’ items from his collection.
