DESCRIPTION

Remember the Future - Artist Talk and Closing Tea. Refreshments including Numi Tea will be served. Talk begins at 4pm.

Crystal Morey’s work reflects her interest in how human advancements in technology, agriculture, and urbanization have imposed stress on natural ecosystems and the species that live in them. She humanizes these ideas by making sculptures of humans and animals that express the delicate dependencies we share.

The works in ‘Remember The Future’ are inspired by the layered masks of indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest that often include animal and human forms within one another. They also draw ideas form ancient Egyptian sarcophagi and mythological narratives involving morphed animal/human identities. Morey creates reinterpretations of these sources to capture the contemporary condition of living out of balance with nature and our deep longing of interconnectedness.
