(1959- ) Morwenna Lake was born in Ilford, Essex. She has just completed a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey. Her main interest is sculpture, however, printmaking and drawing also form part of her practice. All are used to explore an important aspect of life, our understanding of the world through the senses. Her work encourages the viewer to a sensory experience of objects. She is interested in creating sensations like the desire to touch, lick or eat her work.
Different states of being appear in her work such as, control/order/chaos, rupture/escape, containment. She is interested in exploring new ways of using traditional materials, as well as exploring contemporary sculptural processes. The use of building and architectural materials also enter her sculptural purview. Experimentation and serendipity are an important part of this process. She uses modelling, casting and construction in a range of materials, such as wax, paper, wood, papier mâché, bronze, aluminium, fired clay, metal and found objects, to create a variety of experiences of form, colour, texture and surface.
Since 2008, her work has featured in a number of exhibitions in the UK. She continues to develop her visual language through the medium of sculpture, drawing and printmaking and is inspired by artists such as Eva Hesse, Lynda Benglis, Cornelia Parker, Richard Deacon and Camille Henrot. She lives and works in Surrey.
