About the artwork
These incense decks are made under artist Laura Aldridge's moniker ENERGY please! It functions two fold as both a thinking space for the artist to test glazes, textures and techniques, and also a way to generate functional objects to offer for sale.
Each incense dock is entirely unique, glaze intuitively using a mixture of glazes both improvised, off the shelf and from recipes. They have space to store your sticks, a port for burning and an indent for a cone - covering all your incense needs.
About the artist
Laura Aldridge’s work moves freely between wall-based reliefs and sculptural installations, playing on the abilities of ‘collage’ to operate in two and three-dimensions. Her works use fabric, images (both photographic and silk-screened) and found objects to create installations that the artist describes as ‘expanded collage’. She often arranges elements of her works upon tables, low plinths or across gallery walls to bring ‘things’ together so that they might coalesce as a whole.
Aldridge (b. 1978, Frimley; lives and works in Glasgow). Recent solo exhibitions include: curfew, Edinburgh (2019); Peles Empire, (2018); Passerelle, Brest (2015), Tramway, Glasgow (2015), Studio Voltaire at Sunday Art Fair (2014) and Studio Voltaire (2011). The artist is represented by Koppe Astner, Glasgow.
Studio Voltaire has been supporting artists for over twenty years, through our renowned programme of exhibitions, performances, events and education projects as well as providing affordable studios.
We have gained a reputation for championing both emerging and underrepresented artistic practices, often at key stage in the artist’s career. These have included Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Phyllida Barlow, Ruth Ewan, Elizabeth Price, Jo Spence, Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan, Richard Slee and Cathy Wilkes.
The gallery also provides an important UK platform for international artists, often providing them their first-ever presentation in the UK. These have included Nairy Baghramian, Thea Djordjadze, Nicole Eisenman, Judith Hopf, Paulina Olowska and Henrik Olesen.
