Collection: HIP HIP DECAY

Suzanne McRae graduated from the University of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts Ceramics. Over the next decade she moved into costume and fashion. Most recently she has returned to sculpture, textiles and ceramics to create pieces which are finding a place in galleries and the homes of people who are transfixed by their character and charm. The sentimentality and haunting nature of memory is the world she is drawn to. Beautiful things now decrepit, once cherished objects now paused in a parallel place, still existing but really inhabiting a long gone life.
Her animals are the anthropomorphic bridge between human and creature, the past and present, and truth or dream. A melancholic yet enticing longing for ornaments our past generations loved.
