Aspen Art Museum


Liz Larner

Feb 26, 2016-Jun 5, 2016
Liz Larner’s wall-based ceramic forms initially appear like paintings, but on closer inspection resemble ancient tablets or sculptural specimens of the mineral world. Fired and coated with pigment and resin, the clay pieces have fissures, cracks, and bends that seem to compress geological history, recalling the very forms and occurrences found in stones and minerals. The titles of the works—inflexion, caesura, subduction, mantle, passage, and calefaction—allude to Larner’s interest in chance and the fragmentation of both the body and the earth.
