Amy Worrall

Amy Worrall

Amy Worrall (born 1989) is a sculptor working in ceramic. By mapping her magpie like collection of images, songs, paintings and films tells the story of her girl gang. The sculptures are a physical manifestation of her research into different ways of looking at girls and what it means to be a woman in the digital age, all skewed visions of self-portraits. Mimicking familiar images to lure the audience to the work, the paradoxes begin to reveal themselves; coexisting as two binaries at once – young and old, cute and ugly, the female form and the shapeless, utopia and dystopia, desire and repulsion. Each character is a different fragment of the same collective mind. Taking the viewer on a disorientating journey with me through pure joy to total disarray, filled with glitzy yet detached, dead eyed girls who morph between cutesy caricature and monstrous creature, inhabiting the space between dream and nightmare. Amy is one of the founders of the craft platform dotdotdot, promoting underrepresented and emerging material based art. In 2018 she completed her Master of Craft! at Konstfack, University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm.
