DESCRIPTION

Nevada-based artist Rebekah Bogard is a ceramicist who creates immersive environments of colorful, playful--and at times disturbing--scenes of imaginary creatures enveloped in abundant flora and fauna. Each one of Bogard's figures isĀ  handcrafted earthenware object, painted with acrylic. Her figuratiive representations may appear endearing at first, yet upon closer inspection we recognize traits that are associated with the human species more than the animal kingdom. While as aa material ceramics are often relegated to the applied, or lesser arts, Bogard's immersive "non-functional" landscapes ground this work in a contemporary domain where issues of sexuality, gender, and role-playing are addressed.
