2022 participant 36 Vaze parade; May 8 - July 2 at Terra Delft Gallery
Daphne Corregan was born in the USA, studied in France and still resides in the south of France. There’s always a sensitive intuition at the roots of Daphne Corregan’s work that she sketches out either in drawings, photographs or even through a conversation, becoming possible cornerstones for her ceramic art. Corregan works more on the representation of the object than on the object itself. She wants to demonstrate that a pot, for example, may become just as important as a sculpture or painting by removing it from its daily context. She will flatten it, exaggerate its size or even highlight only one of its details. Daphne calls herself a butterfly, flitting from one territory to another but always true to her original interests: architecture, the body, and the ceramic lexicon.
“Since the beginning of my career I have been strongly influenced by fabrics and folk clothing. I love the contrasts of a complicated pattern or surface structure in relation to a simple, ugly, or clumsy form. The two are matched together and help each other to exist and become something new.”
