“Chantal Powell’s ‘Relic# 21 after Piers Wardle’ echoes ideas of ancient ritual; a gallant stag decorated with flowers evokes suggestions of shamanistic and pagan ceremony. At the same time each of Powell’s works observe the creation of language. The skulls in ‘Relic’ and the Inscribed Parrot Skulls are decorated with an amalgam of ancient letters, words and hieroglyphics. Powell’s PhD focuses on the psychology of human relationships informs her work as an artist.” (excerpt from exhibition text)
