Terrain presents Claire Ashley’s site specific work titled:

“limes and bricks suck pink you tasteless hunk

or just

limes and brick suck pink
tasteless hunk”

Ashley’s work over the past ten years has evolved out of an examination of domestic objects of comfort and play. This impetus has led me to explore forms that include: my home, pillows, mattresses, bodies, airbags, and playful bouncy castles as symbols of comfort, protection (over-protection) and playful energy. My recent work has used silhouette shapes from architectural fragments of my home as a starting point from which an inflatable form is stitched. These architectural fragments once inflated become figurative: a reference to the people who dwell inside them and the thing that makes a house a home.
