9 Stones Artist Rachel Joynt at RHA Ashford Gallery 15 Nov – 20 Dec

Sea-Change
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change,
into something rich an strange

William Shakespeare, The Tempest

A new body of work comprising of delicate bronze sea forms alongside sand pictures, exploring, comparing and contrasting themes around our Earths wealth and riches, by Rachel Joynt RHA will be on exhibit in the RHA Ashford Gallery. This work plays with the complex relationship between ecology and the economy and the ebb and flow within markets and ocean currents.

Joynt brings a level of delicacy and fragility to figurative sculpture based on these sensitive and fragile life forms that inhabit unpolluted pockets of ocean.

Using the Echinoid Skeletons, in particular the Sand dollar species, as a metaphor for richness, wealth and the search for rejuvenation and sustenance. Perforated symmetrical forms that emanate warm light in chalky opalescent colours. In reference to Sand dollars; ‘is a creature whose very strangeness helps us to see ourselves more clearly by showing us what we are not’. The Ancestor’s Tale by Richard Dawkins.

Permanence, transience and flux are reoccurring themes and her use of sand, light, glass, bronze and cast iron underline this. For Joynt, scale is also important, transforming our normal viewpoint by using different magnifications, she allows the subject to take on a new presence.
