Entangled Wonders – Abmeyer + Wood
1210 2nd Avenue Seattle WA 98101
March 2nd through April 1st 2017
Open: Monday – Saturday, 11am – 6pm
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.
I am so excited and honored to be included in South Korea’s publication: “Monthly Ceramic Art”! I am featured in the “world” section with lovely images from my “Delicate Dependency” exhibition at Modern Eden last fall!
