Tasting Boundaries art gallery


I’ve been interested in working with my hands and creating something to stretch the limits of my imagination and the limits of the clay so i’ve
always been interested in pushing the material boundaries making something, you know, as large as I can to the ends of my ability with the clay. It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen. I was talking with my mom and it reminded me
of something out of Star Trek or Star Wars. I admire the artist for being innovative and thinking way outside the box of what traditional art is. It’s fun here where you can actually touch it and eat parts of it. (laughing) These are based on the form of a dinosaur skull
but it’s like a serving platter of eccentric function. So you can reach
inside nasal cavity and then pluck out out some kind of edible. I’m amazed really. I’m surprised. Just from working with ceramics myself, it’s so hard for me to just make a bowl or something. Cracks in it and gets all lumpy and stuff. I really appreciate someone being able to let go of their master pieces because, I mean, here I am standing here touching her art. To me that takes a lot of courage and trust in other people to say, you know, you can not only come and touch my art but you can smash it if you want. To encourage the viewer to challenge passive spectatorship of art, so I wanted to encourage you to have taboo interactions with
the pieces. So to touch, to taste, to destroy, to win, to actually pick it up and
use it. Things that you would never normally do in the gallery in then the idea is that you take that
experience out of the gallery and think about how your interactions to life or to media and how you’re consuming information in your life and to hopefully that you’ll really think a little bit more about your actions. I love it! I think this is a wonderful experience. I hope a lot of other people find it. This is up for a month. It’s up through February 22. So that’s a nice bit of time.
