Sian is based in North Wales, where she has her studio.
A key driving force is the exploration of material – currently the translucent properties of porcelain and latex – particularly when back-lit.
‘I work with the paper-thin properties of un-glazed porcelain which, like latex, shares the ability to record surfaces in minute detail. The resultant pieces invite a re-interpretation of the originals.
I am drawn to working in the landscape, to the derelict and the discarded, often incorporating archival material.
My work lends itself to residencies and installations.
I also work within the arts in health sector with two long running projects – Lost in Art for people living with dementia in Denbighshire, and Creative Alternatives, an arts on prescription programme based in St Helens, Merseyside.’
This site records some key hospital commissions and projects.
My current focus is the next stage of Fragments in Time – researched with an Arts Council of Wales Grant in 2019 and due to be exhibited as an installation at Oriel Brondanw in 2022.
