Layla KhooTuesday 8th March – Layla Khoo

Layla is a multimedia 3D artist, specialising in ceramics and site-specific installations. Her work is responsive – responding to ideas, events, or collections of objects. Layla’s work develops from this initial response, considering how this can be represented in a contemporary way within the context of her material practice. She chooses to create work in ceramic for its broad range of historical connotations, from everyday tableware to satire and sculpture.

Layla has previously worked with collections within the National Trust, independent museums, with diverse communities and created permanent sculpture for the Forestry Commission. She is currently working on a new experimental body of more personal work supported by an Arts Council England Developing Your Creative Practice grant and working on a community and heritage inspired residency in Middlesbrough supported by Historic England. Layla is also a director of a small collection of artist studio spaces in North Yorkshire and is a director and founder of Ryedale Open Studios.
