Terraforms: Sculpture by IANNA FRISBY
Jun. 22 - Aug. 19, 2018
Reception: Friday, Jul. 13, 6-9 PM

While visiting Belize, we ventured into the underworld limestone caves leading to the ancient Mayan underworld. We canoed by a single light and all was silent but for the water rhythmically dripping from the geological formations above. It was there, in that space, that we bare witness to well-trodden footpaths leading to the remains of their dead and sacred artifacts and pottery left nearby.

The experience left me awestruck.


I came back from that trip wanting to create work that reflected the sense of wonderment and discovery that I felt in that moment.

Clay’s kinship to geological formation has provided much fodder for my current body of work and so I began exploring what clay naturally wants to do, which is to break down and build up.


My studio practice experienced a shift as well, becoming more fluid and experimental, a more “call and response” process in hopes of finding some common ground between me and the clay.


This body of work is an invitation for the viewer to slowly explore the surfaces and crevasses in hopes of stirring their own imagination and sense of curiosity.
