Henrietta MacPhee is a British artist, whose practice is centred in clay. Blending the visual and tangible she creates entertaining illusions and a sense of complexity that traverses the border between 2D and 3D. Through a fresh child-like perspective of the world, she portrays scenes of poetic tenderness and humour, interweaving metaphors for embracing life’s diversity of peoples and their cultures.
Her work has been selected for a number of prestigious shows in the UK, including ‘Artworks’ organised by the Barbican Arts Group and curated by Turner Prize winner Tai Shani. In 2019 she was invited to present and talk about her work at the International Ceramics Festival in Aberystwyth, Wales.
