MOTHS Lesley Kendall

Machinery Street Gallery

17 April 2021 – 22 May 2021 

Normally a paper artist, Lesley Kendall felt compelled to use clay to express the significant beauty and transitory nature of living creatures for her exhibition Moths With meticulous attention to detail,  Kendall has delicately hand-crafted over 300 life sized porcelain moths.  Each of these tiny, white-winged insects is unique and extraordinary in its detail. The moths were fastidiously created during lockdown, to depict the fragility and fleeting nature of life and to remind us of the impermanence of all things.
