Phoebe Collings-James Mudbelly Vessel

These vessels from Phoebe Collings-James' first collection of ceramics, Mudbelly, presented at Picture Room September 21–October 13, 2019. Mudbelly is the ceramic gut of artist Phoebe Collings-James. A transformative, yard art sculpture space for her tender, haptic objects. Mudbelly manifests as a collection of wheel thrown pots and vessels inspired by cephalopods suckers and dry rattling poppy pods. In the dynamic act of throwing on the wheel, a silent but forceful negotiation takes place in which the artist wrestles with notions of life and death.

Phoebe Collings-James, b. 1987, lives and works in London. She works across various mediums including painting, sculpture, and video. Her work has been shown internationally including shows at Company Gallery, Jack Barett, and the Studio Museum in Harlem, New York; Arcadia Missa, Italian Cultural Institute, and Ronchini Gallery, London; Anonymous Gallery, Mexico City; the Venice Biennale; and ARNDT, Singapore.
