Konsthantverkarna: Maria Kristofersson 2 – 27/6 2018

By on March 18, 2018

Vernissage Saturday 2 June 12.00-16.00.

Drawing and painting are the basis of my work with clay, whether it’s two or three-dimensional works. For a long time I have worked with the Box as a form, an object that is associated with function but which in my work completely lacks this purpose. What interests me, rather, is its symbolic function such as the box can contain, exclude, delineate, retain and carry .. and has a outside and inside.

Recurring themes in my work are proximity/distance and it’s brittle against the robust. The material I mainly work with is unglazed earthenware and the color scale different denominations of white. The surfaces of my works contain a lot of information despite their limited color and the line is always essential.

In front of my upcoming exhibition at Konsthantverkarna, I focus on the latter and work two-dimensional with some extended color scale.
