Lois Harvey’s artist statement:
“I’m interested in how physiological frameworks are organized within nature. Over the past year, I’ve become increasingly fascinated by structures found in the human body, specifically these anatomical elements that experience change or evolution over time or during spurts of growth. It is the correlation between a form and evolution that I find extremely engaging.
My sculptural ceramics can be seen as abstract representations of human infrastructures. The hand-made forms do not depict organisms found in nature, but mimic relics that could be attributed to human society. By creating structures based on simple linear elements, I can explore the role of repetition, gravity and the limitations of weight within nature. The result is objects that straddle the line between real and abstract.”
