'Beauty finds its finest expression in static forms, in which a fragment of action or movement finds equilibrium and repose, and for which simplicity of expression is more suitable than a wealth of detail.'
My work examines the simpicity of form, a sense of stillness and an enquiry into aesthetics.
Within my quest to identify notions of particular aesthetics and beauty, I examine the rich history, classical standards and aesthetic sensibility inherent within some Eastern cultures.
I have chosen porcelain as my main medium for its superior qualities of translucency and pure white colour. These qualities enhance the aesthetic qualities and sensory associations I am striving to achieve within my work.

An eclectic group exhibition by some of our favourite artists including Kathryn Haug, Chloe Tupper, Di Cubitt, Jarrad Martyn, Dianne Gall, Alana McVeigh and Denise Pepper.
Alana McVeigh's work is primarily an investigation of the vessel through simplicity, line and shape. This recent body of work 'REFORMATION' questions the idea of 'the vessel' through a series of deconstructed/reconstructed wheel thrown forms. The works are driven by an engagement with the making and sensory understanding by the maker.
REFORMATION Series 1, is an ongoing exploration and experimentation extending from Alana's current PhD research. Each reconstruction is influenced by the joins, intersecting lines, shadow and markings found in architecture, in both Europe and Western Australia during her recent artist in residence engagements.
Alana is currently an Artist-in-Residence at the Fremantle Arts Centre and gratefully acknowledges their assistance.
