Veron­ica Cay

Folly of An­gels

Art Almanac - - WHAT'S ON -

Bird’s Gallery 2 to 23 Septem­ber, 2017 Mel­bourne

New sculp­tures and draw­ings con­tinue Veron­ica Cay’s in­ter­est in feel­ing and how wrap­ping, stitch­ing and col­lag­ing onto clay is a ma­te­rial par­al­lel to con­cepts of mem­ory, di­a­logue and un­der­stand­ing – or, what it is to be hu­man. Cay’s forms spot­light how peo­ple are ha­bit­u­ally “seek­ing con­nec­tions, test­ing re­silience and ac­knowl­edg­ing frail­ties.” She rel­ishes life draw­ing for the chance to rep­re­sent some­one in a way that can’t be ex­pressed in words.
