August 5 - September 2, 2022
From Goldmark Cultural Center:
“Of Fire and Milk, on display at the Goldmark Cultural Center’s John H. Milde Gallery, is a solo exhibition of figurative ceramics and functional pottery by Amy Henson.
Amy explores issues of maternal feminism, and the facets inherent in the intersubjectivity of her lived experience as a woman, artist, and mother.
The intersection of marginalization with tactile or wearable art reinforces her interest in craft media like ceramics and fibers. Humble red earthenware adorned with symbolic flower motifs is an ideal foundation with corporeal formal references to hip, shoulder, belly, and breast, textured by rhythmic and radial pinch marks.
The work addresses lactation in various tones, asking the user to confront their relationship with the breast and breastfeeding. The conceptual ceramic pieces in the exhibition explore the identity transformation and act as a clarion call for reconciliation.
Of Fire and Milk runs from August 5 to September 2, 2022. The gallery is open from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM Monday through Friday. A reception will be held on Saturday, August 13, from 1 to 3 PM.”
