“In The Forest” is an exhibition of porcelain sculptures set to open at Daisy Laing Gallery in Penzance. Taiwanese ceramicist Winnie Lyn has created a bespoke collection of carved and altered, reformed and refined porcelain sculptures, finished in mystery forms of shapes in the forest. Winnie Lyn is one of the key advocate and committee member of Penzance Festival of Art. Her practice concerns experience and memories, aiming to translate the truth and pretense of life into the mediums of ceramics, drawing and mixed sculptures. Currently, focusing on inter-generational narrative, around both human and human to environment dialogues. Winnie Lyn channels her concerns into abstract forms, which carry both an emotional charge and a “radiation” of meaning. From 3rd June to 3rd July, “In The Forest” will be exhibited in Daisy Laing Gallery, Penzance. More details please visit www. or WinnieLyn.Art
