1 in stock
Robert Cooper: Turning Tide is a collaged sculpture made from found ceramic and glass. Fascinated by the persistence of artefacts and ideas. Cooper often uses found objects, such as pottery shards from the Thames foreshore, which are imbued with a previous life and function, as a starting point for his work. Using the process of recombining to create new narratives with multiple meanings.
About the artist
Robert Cooper is an established ceramicist and educator working from his London studio. He studied at The Royal College of Art and worked on public art projects immediately after graduation. Throughout his creative career he has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally and he is currently working on exhibitions in Britain and Japan.
For many years Cooper has employed recycling as a mode of working. Different elements such as clays, oxides and glazes left over from teaching sessions, discontinued ceramic transfers, printed imagery from popular culture and even pieces of previous work are recombined to create new narratives with multiple meanings. These processes are the starting point for his body of work for FieldWork.
