Lene Ryden

Lene Ryden’s work comprises of vessels which has been altered by throwing objects at them, when the clay is at its most malleable. The sheer energy and randomness of the impact stands strong as the pieces communicate powerfully with the viewer. All are damaged in a variety of ways. The purpose is to give voice to the experience of loss, a whole that by sudden impact is changed: unrecognisable, a known transformed into the unknown, no longer a whole, damaged, violated and broken.
