anna noel: telling tales
21 January - 5 march 2017
The delightful ceramic animals and figures by Anna Noel. Working from her idyllic rural studio in the Gower, Anna gains inspiration from the animals she has grown up with and her passion for fables, rhymes and memories of childhood make-believe.
As Ceri writes in her catalogue essay:
'Anna has long been fascinated by animals, indigenous and exotic, and by peoples’ relationships with animals. Growing up in the countryside, with a dog at her side and free roaming cats, she has keenly observed animals in their habitats. Agricultural animals, woodland creatures, seashore life, Anna has allowed herself insight into animal habits and characteristics. She has also found quiet companionship in animals, trust and reassurance. It is owing to her observations that she knows to take nothing for granted.'
A touring exhibition initiated by the Mission Gallery and curated by Ceri Jones.
