Sharon Hardy - Looking Deep

Looking Deep is an exhibition of ceramic sculpture by Sharon Hardy.  This series is based on looking deeply into the patterns and forms found in nature.  The sculptures investigate the process of slowing down and really looking and appreciating the intricacies of the natural world.   Chaos, order, and patterns found in natural systems of nature are what the work is investigating.  The finished forms are a result of an intuitive response to the direction that the pattern takes.  Looking deep in nature sometimes means to face the truths of how the environment is being harmed by man’s actions.  Hardy’s topic work  addresses bee colony collapse, the polar ice melt and her reaction to the awe felt towards the amazing patterns that the natural world presents.  April 29 - June 2, 2017
