Clay in Motion

Recent Works by Heidi McKenzie

Exhibition extended!
See Clay in Motion until December 13

FUSE, a vibrant new initiative of the Gallery Shop at The Clay & Glass, is an ongoing exhibition series featuring selected works by Gallery Shop artists and special guests.
Clay in Motion is comprised of two bodies of work, Anima and Maru. In the series Anima, bands of thrown and altered clay are coaxed into kinetic rhythms. Each piece drives toward resolution. Maru [circle in Japanese] is a series of interlocking toric vessels depicting community engagement and growth. Each piece is intensely personal, while at the same time seeking to express the universal experience of “living the dance.”
Please join us in the new foyer exhibition space at the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery for the Opening Reception of the inaugural FUSE exhibition on Sunday, November 8 at 1pm. The artist will be in attendance and all are welcome.

 

BIO

Heidi McKenzie is a Toronto-based ceramic artist. She comes to clay after two decades of arts management and production in the broadcast industries. Heidi holds an MFA from OCADU (2014), and Diploma from Sheridan (2012). In 2009, Heidi returned to her father’s ancestral home of India to complete a ceramic apprenticeship at the foothills of the Himalayas. In 2011 Heidi received the Emerging Artist Award at Toronto Artists Project, and in 2012 exhibited at the Toronto International Art Fair. In 2013, Heidi was funded by the OAC to create in Jingdezhen, China and in Bali, Indonesia. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, including biennales and Romania, Hungary. Most recently, she completed a residency at Guldagergaard International Centre for Ceramic Research, where her work was acquired for the Centre’s permanent collection and toured to Italy. Heidi’s studio practice engages issues of identity and belonging. A key element of Heidi’s work is “static motion.” She integrates both wheelwork and slipcasting in abstract portraiture and representation, often incorporating coloured clays to capture the complexity of subject and idea.
