Delicate Dependencies 
Solo Exhibition – Crystal Morey
San Francisco, CA
October 14 -29, 2016
Humankind has become the driving influence
and force behind natural evolution, with the ability to alter life from a
single cell all the way up to entire ecosystems. Through these actions we
are leaving vulnerable species and habitats frantic, facing disruptions
and uncertain outcomes. In my work I explore these actions while also
creating an evocative and mysterious narrative that shows
our interdependence with the land and animals around us.

β€œDelicate Dependencies” is an exploration of
these ideas shown through plants and animals native to the western United
States. These creatures exist in habitats stressed or impacted by human
activity, leading them to an unclear future. They inhabit a space
where the relationship between humans, and the plants and animals around them,
are intricately and physically bound together, dependent on each other for
their long-term viability. Sculpted from the silken white earth of porcelain, I
see these delicate figures as containing power, as modern talismans and
precious telling objects. They see a heightened vision of human
influence in the natural world and are here to remind us of our current
trajectory and the delicate dependencies we all share.
