About the Exhibition ...
Prigodich and Marsh’s works use clay in surprising ways. The works make use of real-world reference, elegantly reimagined negative space, in iconic and poetic small scale installations as well as discrete works. On and off the wall, their beautiful surfaces and challenging structures are straight up eye candy.
