Myer Halliday is intrigued by the interaction of line, colour and pattern. His techniques explore how 2D surface decoration transforms our perception of 3D forms. He is interested in the way abstract mark-making and the quality of his lines interact with his materials - paper-like porcelaneous clay. Through his use of pattern, Myer enjoys exploring the tension between our human desire for predictability and the joy associated with the unexpected.
Myer’s delicate yet durable work explores the visual relationship in the presentation of objects and their environment. While his surface pattern alters our perception, the shape of each object is carefully considered as a series, so his pieces form a cohesive, collection of purposeful objects.
A graduate of Glasgow School of Art, Myer is based in Edinburgh.
