Understanding Witches Now
Understanding Witches Now
A recent show of precarious clay fountains, amorphous sculpture, writing, and video collage, expanding on the notion of animating the inanimate. The works are made from clay that the artist pulled up from the earth at various sites around Oregon. This reclaimed clay has been re-hydrated and formed by the artist’s hands into a working material, which is then crafted and fired into what Ritter calls “charged objects.” Through dualistic mediums, an aggressive and poetic statement is made on the ecstasy of form.
