This is the second of the five brand new works that premiered at the Penticton Art Gallery for the group show called Terroir: Physically Speaking. It is ceramic sculpture that is about 23 inches tall by 13.75 inches wide and 5.25 inches deep and is titled “She was an Animist”.
I do not have a clue about how the universe is put together but I very much doubt it is put
together as a spiritual hierarchy. The idea of animism – where all things are treated with the respect due a spiritual entity does not seem like such a bad operating principal though. I love the idea that a rock exists because it wants to.
