Stone 1

A Showing of Odd Ceramics

February 4th -27th 2016
Reception: First Thursday, February 4th, 5-8 pm

 Artist Statement:

I work at the interface of chaos and control. I make gardens and landscapes, both real and imaginary. I am a visual artist and a landscape architect.

I revel in the collision of the exuberance and complexity of disorder with the struggle to create structure and comprehension. It is this struggle between order and chaos that creates beauty, new ideas, deeper understanding and repose but also discordance, ambiguity, turbulence and ugliness. For many years, I have used ceramics to explore ideas of demarcating places and sculptural presence. I have focused on a typology of simple forms including markers, plummets and targets.
