May Hands - All That is Left
Bosse & Baum is pleased to present All That is Left, a solo exhibition of wall-based works by British artist May Hands, containing hand built ceramic forms, woven and crocheted textile fragments, naturally dyed surfaces and detritus from everyday consumption.
The subject matter explored in this body of work is largely influenced by the structure of Virginia Woolf’s, The Waves, which oscillates between prose and poetry. Hands sees The Waves, as a woven tapestry of six lives, examining the fragmented self and as a collective.
The artworks in the show celebrate tactility and the visible hand, exploring the intimacy found in the handmade and a way to archive and digest thoughts, emotions, memories and the everyday. This practice can be read as a counterpoint and sanctuary from capitalism and hyper-consumerism.
