Solo exhibition by The Cass Reader in Silversmithing Simone ten Hompel.
"Traces have a notion of someone having been there. Traces convey memory, or demarcate or simply leave a mark. Traces can be read and interpreted, however that meaning depends on who is reading the stuffness." Simone ten Hompel, 2014.
Work by Simone Ten Hompel is exhbited at Gallery So, Brick Lanefrom 5 February to 5 April 2015.
The pieces in this exhibition investigate mark making through the third dimension and colour. Shapes and marks are embossed and overlaid into the metal, which in itself becomes the provider of pigments, texture and content.
These shallow but wide objects play off the notion of holding and carrying, or simply keeping safe; a rim is a border, a dimple is the holder. These can be filled or merely left empty.
Since the exhibition opened Simone has been delighted to learn that the V&A Museum have chosen some of her work for their collection.
