Carrie Reichardt creates anarchic artworks where vintage floral, kitsch, royal and religious crockery is given a new twist by re-firing with layers of new ceramic decals. They are modified in a “radical use of traditional things” and often adorned with skulls, cheeky slogans and political statements. Her first solo exhibition, entitled “Mad in England”, provided an exploration of this theme, which she has continued to pursue in subsequent work.

Carrie Reichardt has been an outspoken advocate for using Art as a form of personal therapy and “Mad In England” is a perfect back stamp for her work. It is fitting that her house and studio in Chiswick is famously called The Treatment Rooms.
