> DESCRIPTION

Erin Morrison’s ceramic vessels began as an attempt to follow the footsteps of Gauguin, who formed a number of ceramic containers which seem to hover on the border of utilitarian and decorative. Constructed in parallel with her paintings, using many of the same shapes, an absurd collection was born, and from this absurdity further new work emerges.

At some visceral level, ceramic vessels are objects of antiquity, they protect and contain.  In Morrison’s studio, the recent UCLA graduate continues the tradition of questioning utility, probing for the limits of definition when a vessel cannot contain, or when ornamental value exceeds utilitarian capacity, looking for identity and inspiration which are then fed back into her other media.
