Life is Art is Life - Ceramics Exhibition by Aiden Canaday

Life is Art is Life - Ceramics Exhibition by Aiden Canaday

Life is Art is Life’ is a fascinating new ceramics exhibition by Oxford-based artist Aiden Canaday. Launching Friday 1st April with a free opening event.

In this new exhibition Canaday showcases work produced between his last exhibition in 2018 and the present day. Most of the work that will feature has been made at home during the pandemic or at Oxpots studio at East Oxford Community Centre, reflecting Canaday's thoughts and feelings, telling stories of his life and the world around him during this period in time. ⠀

Featuring hand built vessels made from both stoneware and earthenware clay, Canaday's primary focus is on the decorating process, and his technique uses glazes, slips, underglazes, sgraffito and wax crayons to tell the stories that surround him. The pieces convey a range of emotions, speaking to both who he is as an individual and also to aspects of community and the goodness in humanity. ⠀

'Life is Art is Life' will be on display in the #WindowGalleries along Friars Entry in Oxford, OX1 2BY from Friday 1st April to Wednesday 27th April, free and available to visit at any time. You can join the exhibition opening this Friday, 6-9pm, no booking required. For more information, click here.
