Title:  Beloveds
Description: Ceramic
Artist: Helen Martino
Profile: ' I make ceramic sculptures that embody a sense of narrative. Each piece within a series explores an element of the story through a change in scale, movement, composition or colour. I am fascinated by body language within both the moving and still image. I find inspiration, for example, in the exaggerated and stylized movements expressed by actors in silent movies - but equally interesting to me is the way in which narrative is depicted within Mogul and Persian miniature paintings. Here, a still gesture, combined with often intricate and symbolic composition, captures a moment which tells both a past and a future story. My sculptures, often intimate in size, relate to this single moment where great, or small, events in people’s lives are revealed by gesture and communication.
