Beyond Bio: Clay Bodies
Curated by Castle Gallery Director Katrina Rhein, Beyond Bio features artists who utilize ceramic elements in their exploration of the human form on both a physical and psychological level and to highlight biomedical issues visually and conceptually. The works range from the use of the human form in its entirety, manipulated to convey abject beauty, to isolated, fragmented elements of the human form, (indicating life beyond our daily comprehension — the body as a macrocosm) to playful biomorphic forms seemingly at work.
Exhibiting artists are Jason Briggs, Scott Chamberlin, Lauren Levine Shafer, Judy Moonelis, Michelle Martin, Helen Otterson, Grace Powers Fraioli, Lauren Sandler, Jacqueline Sandro and Alexandra Rutsch.
Beyond Bio: Clay Bodies is presented in conjunction with the Clay Art Center’s All Fired Up: A Celebration of Clay in Westchester County.
