I am so happy to share Entangled Wonders, a new collection of work on view with Abmeyer +Wood! The exhibition is so lovely, if you find yourself in Seattle, please stop by! Also find the work available online.

Crystal Morey’s ability to sculpt porcelain is remarkable. She draws inspiration from Egyptian, Greek, and Roman deities and Native American creation stories that result in her exquisitely sculpted animal-human hybrids. Morey’s sculpture illustrates the interdependency between human and animal worlds and the delicate balance necessary to sustain this bond.

In our time, humankind has become the driving influence and force behind natural evolution, with the ability to alter life from a single cell all the way up to entire ecosystems. Through these actions we are leaving vulnerable species and habitats frantic, facing disruptions and uncertain outcomes. In my work I explore these ideas while also creating an evocative and mysterious narrative that shows our interdependence with the land and animals around us.

“Entangled Wonders” explores an imaginary landscape expanding a dialogue of climate change, the manipulation of evolutionary processes, and where our actions may lead. In this new land, a great shift has unfolded and we find the earth in a state of imbalance. In order to continue, humans and animals have become one, intricately and physically bound together, dependent on each other with a new ability to restore natural life. This alternate world reminds us of our connection to the plants and animals around us, that we are all part of one interwoven ecosystem, supporting and growing together for the long-term health of our world.

Sculpted from the silken white earth of porcelain, I see these delicate figures as containing power, as modern talismans and precious telling objects. They see a heightened vision of human influence in the natural world and are here to remind us of our current trajectory and the precarious dependencies we all share.
