THE TRANSFORMATIONS OF AMPHITRITE
A spark, a flash of light, the dawn of time and creation begins. UK-artist Alison Shelton Brown draws on the first chapter of Ovid's 'Metamorphoses' for inspiration, bringing Amphitrite, Queen of the Sea and wife of the Greek god Poseidon to the fore with a retelling of how sea creatures came to be.
Walking the shoreline she collects flotsam and sea twine discarded by the fishing industry, incorporating these finds in her art jewellery and ceramic sculpture to highlight the perilous state of our oceans due to our greed and over-consumption. A siren call to take care of Amphitrite's creations.
