current work > bubble cloud series
This series is another exploration of the cloud motif that originated from my experience at a ceramics residency in Jingdezhen, China in 2018. The “bubble” forms evolved from realizing the limitations of my art practice based on my geographic, cultural and physical space. The work I made in China had to be redefined because of limitations with process and materials. These limitations ironically brought about a freedom to express these shapes more abstractly. I became enamored with the bulbous cloud interpretations, as if one was viewing them with blurred vision. My work transformed with new parameters in the same way one’s perception of self can transform with a new environment.
