I have no idea where I would put one of these sculptures, but there is something cool about them, so I thought I would share..
After reading her bio, I learned that the artist, Crystal Morey, is concerned with the interactions that humans have with nature - and the effect that we have on the enviornment...namely, disrupting it and the uncertain outcome of our effect.
As a species, we sit at a pivotal moment, faced with monumental questions leading to difficult, uncertain answers. My figures exist on this frontier, absorbed in their own feelings of stress, anxiety and ambivalence. Sculpted from the silken white earth of porcelain, I see these delicate figures as containing power – as modern talismans and precious telling objects. They are here to remind us of our current trajectory and potential for destruction and downfall.Its actually moving to read what she writes about her work.
