Brittle Baroque


Current bid: €1525.00

  • The Artist: JOSEPH AGIUS

    Joe Agius is a senior staff nurse at the Fairyland Ward at Mater Dei Hospital. He has been working there for the last 30years. However, his hobby of ceramic sculpture has become his passion and he has established himself as one of Malta's foremost ceramists. He tends to favour a social neo-realist aesthetic. His profession as a nurse exposes him to a world whose fabric at times includes pain, disease, despair and death. World news is another source of inspiration. Agius chooses linguistic metaphors and figures of speech as springboards for his creations. The titles of his works have a metaphorical origin which Agius interprets as a narrative in clay.
