The first edition of the residency has seen seven artists travel to Mexico City and work out of our studio right on the edge of one of the oldest parts of the city. Each artist immersed themselves in the rich and vibrant culture and lifestyle they discovered there, drawing inspiration from different aspects of the city and feeding it back into their practice. The diverse selection of art objects you find in this portfolio is a testament to the wide range of material processes available and the breadth of imagination from the participating artists. From a playful bronze cast to a watercolour study inspired by the dramatic volcanic landscape beyond the city. A ceramic tile to a small clay crucible used by local workers to melt and cast metal, presented with cast agave-cactus tips made in the same vessel. We are extremely proud of this first year and of all the participating artists.
