Kevin Callaghan received his artistic training in ceramic sculpture and pottery and began moulding clay from a young age. The ductile and reactive nature of this material led him to develop an emotional relationship with clay. with this, he began a personal interpretation of form and the possibilities for its synthesis and abstraction. Influenced on the one hand by mechanical engineering design, and, on the other hand, by traditional Japanese craftsmanship, the artist has spent the last years creating a number of geometric hand-build sculptures. In line with Callaghan’s practice, these microstructures, while appearing to be constructed according to an analogous geometrical ratio, are in fact unique. Each piece was created through practice-led research and possesses sui generis qualities. This tension between likeness and diversity challenges the viewer’s ability to categorize the forms. This cognitive procedure intertwines with the warm materiality of the clay, its and the chalky white residue aesthetic left after their firing. questions the origins of the object. Kevin's aim for these series of objects and their processes of subjective engagement are to push our current experience towards new possibilities – towards as-yet unappreciated realities.
