Molly Hatch's statement:

"In an effort to claim the functional surface as a painting surface, Render is a new collection of plate paintings and vases made sourcing the textile and ceramic collections at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

In the translation and re-working of historic fabric patterns to the ceramic surface of a group of plates, Render becomes an exploration of the relationship between the historic and the contemporary with artworks crossing over categories of decorative art, design and fine art. Through shift in scale, colour and context, the composition of plates both abstract and highlight aspects of the textile patterns, encouraging a new dialogue in pattern.

Fascinated by how we live with objects, how and why we acquire objects and what happens to them throughout history, I see this exhibition as a reflection of the life of surface pattern through the decorative art continuum."
