Protean Pelagic Postprimordial Population

Chris Garofalo's avatar Chris Garofalo

Chris Garofalo’s ceramic sculptures are inspired by life forms we have never known and by those which may yet evolve. Neither representational nor specifically recognizable, her work explores the unpredictable, unrepeatable, accidental potential of form in a contingent evolution. A public installation of these forms becomes its own ecology. The fragility of the material references the natural environment that inspires it – the work's vulnerability serves as a reminder that humans present both the greatest threat to the diversity of life forms on Earth and the greatest hope for its preservation.
