Sam Bakewell: Things you take, things you take too far is on view at Corvi-Mora, London
June 8 – July 31, 2021
Tommaso Corvi-Mora is thrilled to present an exhibition of new work by Sam Bakewell, his second at the gallery.
The exhibition consists of a group of mostly abstract clay works exploring process, waste (material/time/emotion) and the weight of colour. A new emphasis is put on the language of painting, focussing on both the substance of brushstrokes and the complexity of colour combinations, to consider both what it feels like to paint and what paint feels like. Taking the re naming of the days of the week by Angus MacLise in his pataphysical poem ‘Year’ as a manifesto for daily creative renewal, the works mark the passing of days played out in clay whilst contemplated through the eyes of past artists.
Sam Bakewell earned an MA in Ceramics and Glass from the Royal College of Art in 2011. In 2015 he won the BCB Award at the British Ceramic Biennial in Stoke on Trent and took part in the Jerwood Makers exhibition in 2017. In 2018 he participated in the European Ceramic Context at the Bornholm Kunstmuseum in Denmark. In 2019 he was artist in residence at the Victoria & Albert Museum and in the last couple of years has taken part in group exhibitions in Milan, Istanbul, and London.
