Jamieson and McGinness’ project explores the boundary between mediums and art practices. They want to combine their practices of ceramics, a typically domestic medium, and painting, a traditionally two-dimensional medium, to create a sculptural installation.

Through multiple holes in sculptural pinched ceramic objects, Jamieson works to break down the dichotomy between the interior and exterior space of the vessel. This allows the audience an opportunity to reflect on the barriers that are held between their inner and outer selves.

McGinness’ textural paintings on the ceramic forms will play with the audience’s perception creating illusions of where the forms start and finish. By creating intrigue she will entice the viewer for a closer look, encouraging spatial and bodily engagement.

This collaboration challenges the stigmas of what painting and ceramics should be.
