Home is pleased to exhibiting work by Sassy Park in an upcoming group show opening on Wednesday the 26th of April. The exhibition will also feature work by Anthony Bartok, Sarah Edmonson and Sean Wadey.
Sassy Park is a Sydney based artist interested in the history of ceramics, objects and ideas. The medium of clay with its embedded transformative nature of strength and vulnerability becomes a metaphor for themes of the everyday. Her work plays with the accepted uses of domestic ceramics and genres, including pots and figurative works, providing a contemporary take on what ceramics are and what they can say. Ideas of vulnerability and fragility are expressed through scale, intimacy, and humour.
Sassy Park graduated from the National Art school with a Masters in Ceramics in 2018. Previous degrees include Bachelor of Visual Arts from Sydney College of the Arts in painting as well as a post-graduate diploma. She won the Muswellbrook Art Prize for ceramics in 2021 and was runner-up in the Meroogal Women’s Art Prize in 2020. As well as having solo exhibitions at Robin Gibson Gallery, she has shown at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery and in curated exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Ballarat and the Powerhouse Museum. She recently undertook the Onslow Storrier National Art School residency at the Cité des internationale art, Paris, France to research French ceramic folk traditions.
