A Installation of New Work by Natalie Shelly
This solo installation exhibition held November 2013 through February 2014 featured the work of Macomb, IL ceramic artist Natalie Shelly. Her work examines a search for a line that speaks of gracefulness, fragility, and a sense of optimism. Many of the lines visible in this work are permutations on an arch. Whether upright or inverted, made from clay or steel, the rise and fall of each line and the space it inhabits holds a sense of balance and return. This work also explores the nature of boundaries and the compositional weight of space and object in orchestrating harmony.
