Vivien Lightfoot and Jenny Manning’s Entwined Looks at Invasive Species | The Canberra Times

Lightfoot is an extremely creative and versatile artist whose main art form is sculpture made from clay – in this exhibition mainly white raku, buff raku trachyte, pottery terracotta or white paper clay. Her shapes are hand built, immaculately finished and subtly colored. By taking on three-dimensional forms, her various invasive species have a visceral quality, they are very tactile, animated, beautiful and at the same time threatening. In many of her pieces she introduces a sense of drama and enjoys the layering of cultural references in the stories she spins around her works.
