AHHH! This is SO good I have the urge to hang up my pen, forage for the more disposable objects in the world and try to furnish my life with colour instead. Perhaps it’s best to leave it to the masters, and Roos Gomperts has expertly transformed the everyday “throw-away” items we’re saturated with in our consumer-based 21st century into colourful, appealing nuggets of delight. Most of the objects transformed in Ceramics for Plastics are the functional, dull inconveniences that leave us scrambling for the recycling bin, or trying to hide them away in a cupboard that’s slightly too small for all the pint sized disposable cups.
But not any longer my friends; Roos is a believer that these objects deserve more recognition, hoping to show us that we don’t need to hide them all away. And so, concentrating her attention on each of the objects, she elevates them onto a pedestal where her ceramic medium emphasises the difference in materials. The results allow us to perceive the extra-bright looking plastics sitting beside the natural tonal qualities of the ceramics with a new found appreciation.
