The familiar and the strange merge exquisitely in Alake Shilling’s inimitable world — welcoming us to reflect on the boundless yet universal nature of human emotion.


Lady Dots is an edition of 75 made in hand moulded, frit-dyed porcelain, number two in a series of four sculptures curated by Darren Romanelli. The works introduce a collection of the recurring characters who appear throughout Shilling’s practice and — as the first release of their kind — offer an unprecedented opportunity to access her work.


“Lady dots is a beautiful strong bug and she has strong bug arms and a beautiful candy-coated shell. She’s a rough and tumble bug, but also very graceful.”


Alake’s signature is included in the design, while the edition number is etched by hand on the underside of the sculpture.
