Extrusive Series No:3 By Simon Kidd 2020

A New body of work exhibited at Collect 2020 at Somerset House in London March 2020.
The 3rd piece to the Extrusive series. Inspired by a bay called Murlough Bay on the North East coast of Ireland in Co Antrim.

The pieces with in the Extrusive series are a celebration of this place. They are objects with no openings , no visual interior,they are objects which simply are.They have strata like porcelain bodies, much like the basalt covered bay which is Murlach.


Simon Kidd

Kidds practice is a collection of projects of ongoing exploration of spaces across Northern Ireland; Sliabh Dónairt, Dregish and Murlach. The pieces which make up these projects use these physical locations as catalysts for reflection; allowing these objects to become physical manifestations of thoughts, feelings, and ideas the country evokes. These places are explored not only for their physical presence and beauty, but also for their cultural, political, and symbolic importance.
