Marion Angelica | NEGATIVE CAPABILITY

Marion Angelica | NEGATIVE CAPABILITY

Homewood Studios presents new and selected ceramics by Marion Angelica.

Romantic poet John Keats wrote of the ability to suspend judgment about something in order to learn more about it, implying the ability to resist explaining away what we do not understand.  He called this skill negative capability.  Recently, our September exhibiting artist, Marion Angelica, has been creating porcelain work laced with open spaces.  She is not sure what to think about this development, but she has elected to follow Keats’ admonition, to trust the impulse, to go with it.  The work in this show, full of the hallmarks of Angelica’s work – intriguing surfaces, unexpected shapes, graceful lines and surprising color – carries us, with her, into these inviting spaces of not knowing.

On the closing day of the show, Marion, freshly returned from a month’s sojourn in Ireland, will be present for both a formal talk, (beginning at 7pm), about this new body of work as well as informal chats with exhibition attendees.
