Last October, I went to see a ceramics exhibition by a friend of mine, the up and coming talented artist Hilde Lambrecht. Titled ”Petrified Forest”, the work had a strong environmental impact statement and was shown at the Gallery of the Ottawa School of Art (inside the Shenkman Arts Centre).
The work spans over a year of her practice where one can see she has experimented with various techniques as well as mixed-media. I enjoy her play with scale which is something to consider when looking for a major visual impact. The bark-like pieces were some of my favorite pieces.
