  Sullivan + Strumpf Sydney presents new work by ceramic artist and curator Glenn Barkley.

“I keep returning to the idea of time. Time has a particular relevance to ceramics which can come to us from the past looking exactly the same as the day they were made – 5, 50, 500 or 5000 years ago,” says the artist.

“I am also returning to a subject, history, that fascinated me as a teenager Reading of the efforts of the archaeologist Schliemann and Evans – whose sometimes-ham-fisted excavations both obliterated and bought to light the past in a swashbuckling romantic way - are lodged in my brain.”
