"This is a documentation of the human form: how we discover it, how we allow it to be discovered, how we love contours and knuckles and consume selfishly and sinfully - trying in vain to map out our primitive cartography without knowing what names to give the things that we love the most."
~ Shinji Moon
The Anatomy of Being
I've returned to the writings of Shinji Moon in my latest work...thinking about the statement of contours and knuckles. Working within forms to emphasize my imagery, the shapes, and the depth of surface. I thought back to what was most successful in my latest pieces, and it was the amount of depth and forshortening created through the form of my ceramics. So this is where I have focused my emphasis. On the material of buon fresco and the depth of those layers, and how they relate to our layers. As well as the depth and shape of my clay forms.
