Join us for our first show in our Woolloomooloo gallery! Aleisa Miksad’s solo RITUAL MADNESS will run from 3-20 May 2023.
Says Aleisa Miksad: “In my series of ceramic sculptures, I delve into the rich symbolism of Dionysus, exploring themes of agriculture, abundance, and excess. Working with porcelain, I hand-mold embellishments such as petals, leaves and fur and add them in excessive amounts to classical amphora forms. The use of the coiling technique in production adds to the organic, fluid nature of the pieces, reflecting the untamed spirit of Dionysus. These embellishments not only adorn the forms but also symbolize the bountiful harvest and revelry associated with the deity. Through this series, I aim to evoke the wild, joyful essence of Dionysus and celebrate the beauty of excess.”
