Kerrin Samuel is a multimedia ceramic artist who creates artworks that explore the human experience. She draws inspiration from observations of contemporary culture, politics, geopolitics and religion which she sees as a powerful vehicle for her social commentary. Her research combines olfactory, visual and auditory senses as well as light and technology, including working QR codes, NFTs and Augmented Reality (AR) with the artisanal craft of ceramic thus taking her three dimensional sculptures into the fourth dimension. Recreating a version of Victorian era porcelain pillboxes, QR Me (Sounds like “Cure me!) were made contemporary with working QR codes in the context of a global pandemic with links to some of the many ramifications of Covid-19 including anxiety, depression and vitamin- D deficiency. Kerrin’s current work, Ode to Joy and Resilience consists of a full range of decorative ceramic techniques that include glazes, underglazes, lustres, glass melting, and decals. Depicting a copious abundance of flowers (both realistic and abstract), her sculptures exude a sense of joy on the back of fragility metaphorically demonstrating how easily the spirit can break and shatter. Utilising floriography (the language of flowers), scent and semi abstraction the flowers are her offering of pleasure against the melancholy, loss and heaviness of recent times.
