By Sina Farrugia Micallef: exploring the theme of vessels, containers and receptacles - bowls, yet not the mere common bowl as we know it, but bowls as artworks in their own right. From the hemispherically-shaped object which has a distinct function, to a decorative and artistically relevant item which has no other scope and purpose other than an aesthetic one.
The bowls have also been created utilising a variety of textures, at times harsh and rough almost as though a layer of material or cloth were embedded within the medium's layers, and at other times given a glossy finish. Furthermore, several of these bowls reveal figures, forms, and even tell a story, portraying some kind of narrative.
A number of wall hangings complement this show, some in series, some tying to the theme explored in her bowls.
