레이 처치는 고대 그리스 도자기에서 영감을 얻어 오늘날의 정치적 쟁점들을 풍자하는 작품을 만든다. 그는 역사적 장면들을 도발적인 현대사회에 대한 내러티브로 대치시킨다. 이 작품의 장식기법, 형태, 문양들은 우리에게 너무나 익숙하기 때문에 이해하기 쉬운 것처럼 보이지만 곧 그 안에는 어두운 주제가 숨어있음을 깨닫게 된다.

Taking classical Greek ceramics as his inspiration, Ray Church satirises political issues of today. The artist replaces historical scenes with provocative contemporary narratives. The style of decoration, shape and patterns are easy for us to look at because they are so familiar, until we recognise the dark subject matters within.
