> DESCRIPTION
Organized by artists Keiko Fukazawa and Jim Gonzalez, "Fractional World in Clay" presents recent work by three artists of different generations, each of whom uses modular ceramic units to create cohesive works that evolve in response to their surroundings. 

Patsy Cox exhibits an installation consisting of small modular units. She describes her work as embodying "mutations, hybrids, growth, and cross-pollination." Her recent installations reflect her relationship to Los Angeles (Cox, born in Thailand, was educated in Missouri and Delaware before moving to LA).  "My installations focus on capturing the overwhelming nature of a sprawling city and often use the primary colors of blue, yellow and red to emphasize the possibility of its transformation: all colors are possible from the mixture."

Ryan Logan presents sculptural work using numerous units he combines and suspends "into a network using overlapping pathways," as the artist puts it.  His installations attempt to "reveal a process that is under construction and open to changes even though the network itself seems to have temporarily adjusted, or acclimatized, to the space."

Brad Miller has been investigating the properties of "natures most persistent ordering systems" in his artwork for the past thirty years. The artist finds his muses, he states, "in the dynamic middle ground of changing patterns, when systems move between order and disorder."


Exhibition curators Keiko Fukazawa and Jim Gonzalez are both ceramic artists and faculty members in the Pasadena City College Division of Visual Arts and Media Studies.
