Inspired by Afrikan alphabets, Art Deco and Russian Suprematist images, Clementina van der Walt has created a body of work which explores the nostalgia and intimacy of the context of ‘home’. This theme is pursued both in composite tile panels, and in still life arrangements of groups of tableware. These utilitarian objects, displayed on items of vintage furniture, invite contemplation on the meaning of the everyday rituals of eating and drinking.
A variety of ceramic techniques have been used to create the forms, the surfaces of which express a rich tapestry of colours, textures and patterns in the artist’s signature style.
