Artist in residence 2015
Jesse Wine, (B. 1983; Chester, UK) lives and works in London. His work combines humour, biography and art history. While Wine’s work is multi-disciplinary, he often describes himself as a ceramicist. His recent work, mostly using clay, has an erudite take on the medium, using its history, its alliance with craft and its placement within the visual arts. His works reveal a fascination with the medium and the process of making, as well as underlining issues of form and display. Recent and forthcoming solo shows include Gemeentemuseum, Den Haag, NL (2016); ‘BIG PICTURES’, Limoncello, London, UK (2015); ‘Young Man Red’, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, UK; ‘Etes-vous toujours Mr.Vin?’, Galerie Éric Hussenot, Paris, FR; ‘Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs’, Cactus, Liverpool; ‘Chester man’, Mary Mary, Glasgow; ‘Uprisings’, MOSTYN, Llandudno (all 2014); Limoncello, London (2012).
