Says Bettina Willner-Browne of her latest series of ceramic sculptures: “The ancient ruins I travelled to as a child with my family have played a significant part in my life. I returned 10 years later to revisit, explore further around Europe and beyond. I chose to live there to be surrounded by old cities. It was an important part of realising my identity and feeling connected to my ancestry.
“Since then I have returned another three times, always being drawn to the sites where people gather – fountains, piazzas, monumental buildings. These ceramic sculptures are my visceral response to an ancient place – not formally representative or site specific but instead a dream-like, abstract interpretation of these moments.”
