Elizabeth MacDonald Artist's Statement
"With clay, I try to create the effects of intimacy and vastness through the use of fragmentation. Small surface elements draw the viewer into a larger context where hundreds of parts interact to form a whole.
Marks of color, texture and layers of powdered ceramic stain are revealed as finished surfaces after the firing. As I choose powders of one imagined hue to mingle with another, I know that every bit of pigment, though hidden in the powdered mixture, will affect the whole. Results of this initial process become the chaos of fragments from which I work. Each element becomes a discovery."
Aside from being a prolific artist in ceramic sculpture and painting, Elizabeth has been instrumental in organizing the "Rivers Alive" exhibition and lecture series hosted by the Washington Art Association. This exhibition and event project has been a collaboration with the Rivers Alliance and the Steep Rock Preserve.
