Small Worlds is a new ceramic and printmaking exhibition by Cardiff based artist Nathan Mullis displaying and platforming his recent body of work over the last few months.
The small worlds concept derives from the title itself the idea of a "world within a world”. Through material exploration and installation I purpose to further the conceptual fabrication of my fictitious landscapes through play and presentation to represent the swirling junction of where my imagination, reverie and memories clash and morph to create objects where reality meets fantasy and fiction.
Fantasy provides the audience the opportunity to escape into alternate realities, explore unknown, weird and wonderful environments benevolent to the one we inhabit. Fantasy in a sense is an escapism and the value of said escapism is that it provides a platform that extends beyond our reality, of which in turn allows us to reflect and look at our own authenticity and worlds realism better.
