-Christabel MacGreevy -
Christabel MacGreevy is an interdisciplinary artist concerned with archetypes, communication and memory, explored through the interplay of the personal and universal. MacGreevy uses storytelling and an idiosyncratic iconography to express what it is to experience the human condition, with its complexities, joys, miseries, furies and madness.
Rockpool Series is a collection of 5 glazed stoneware ceramics made between 2021 and 2023 which are unified by their palette and the exterior drawings which are inspired by dream sequences, the psyche and transcultural symbolism.
-Eleanor Turnbull -
'So much juice' by sculptor and film maker Eleanor Turnbull, brings together a collection of urban, papercrete casts that ooze, collect and channel liquid despite their bone dry material. A slumping asphalt staircase overflows, despite its plughole, or is it a mouth? Asking you its namesake: “Give me all your bad news”.
In Eleanors work food and water are mediums between detachment and belonging, wetness and dryness, digestion and flowability, desire and repulsion. In confronting the relationship we have with our own bodies and to that of the landscape, we inevitably encounter blockages, stagnation, runoff and flooding. Puddles made from paper show that objects are undone by their own material. Colour and form draw us in like children to sweets, edible pinks, marshmallow, milkshake, juice and messy eating.
- Grace Woodcock -
London-based artist Grace Woodcock combines 3D design software with experimental upholstery to make soft sculptures and creations. For ROKSANDA, she has installed a duo of large-scale sculptures exhibited in the store window - evolving innovative elements that complement the shapes and structures of the collection.
