Carrie Reichardt

 

BIOGRAPHY

Carrie is a self-titled craftivist and renegade potter who works from a mosaic-covered building in London. She uses a mix of mural, mosaic and screenprinting techniques to create elaborate, often politicized works of art.

 

Carrie trained at Kingston University and achieved a First class degree in Fine Art from Leeds Metropolitan. She was Artist in Residence at Camberwell Art College in 2009 and at The Single Homeless Project, a charity that supports homeless and vulnerable people in London.

Carrie has been involved in international community and public art projects for over 20 years. Her recent work includes Voodoo Zulu Liberation Taxi, which was recently on display at Coventry Transport Museum, raising awareness about the inhumane treatment of prisoners held in solitary confinement and death rows. Other prominent public works include Dada the Trojan Horse, Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum, Disobedient Objects for the Victoria and Albert Museum, and Mary Bamber – a Revolutionary Woman, for the Museum of Liverpool. Her most recently commissioned community project with The Treatment Rooms Collective is a ceramic mural in the new Acton Gardens development, Tree of Life.

Carrie was awarded the Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship in 2013 to advance the craft of community mosaics working with local communities in Chile and Mexico. She is currently the first visual artist in residence  for Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.

 

Carrie Reichardt’s work has been featured in the press including The Observer, The Guardian, The Evening Standard, Tile and Stone, as well as in several books including renowned ceramist Paul Scott’s Ceramics and Print, 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse by Garth Johnson, Mural Art No 2 by Kirikos Iosifidis and The Idler 42 – Smash the System by Tom Hodgkinson.

 

We have been working with Carrie since 2009 when Dan started to handle her work in Brighton. He debut was at the Renegade Potters and Extreme Craft show based in Brighton in 2010. Carrie assisted in the curation of part of the show and introduced some of her fellow artists to the public. The show was ahead of its time and received a lot of positive feedback from collectors across the globe.

We continue to show Carrie Reichardt's work both in the UK and abroad.
