Gasworks Arts Park Presents

Kris Coad

The Epic & the Everyday: public installations & private lives

Kris Coad has been a practicing ceramicist for over 20 years, dividing her time between her studio practice and being an educator. For the last few years Kris has worked full time in her studio, based at the Gasworks Art Park.

“I am interested in the spiritual and daily ritual of different cultures, the way an object, symbol, mark or shadow and it’s placement can trigger an emotional response. To interpret the anthropological sentiment behind beliefs, I make contemplative pieces that have a stillness and silence in an increasingly complex world.”

Kris produces ceramic pieces for exhibition, selected retail outlets and on commission including a range of tableware for Hotel Hotel, Canberra.

This session is part of Inside Art and Architecture: A series of monthly talks to offer an engaging introduction to the often-hidden processes and worlds behind our built environment and artistic practice. Expand your knowledge of local architectural landmarks, explore sculptural creativity and engage in thought-provoking dialogue.
