Ellen George’s Nose Touches Twig solo exhibit of polymer clay sculptures inspired by nature will be at PDX Contemporary Art in Portland, Oregon through May 30.
A former dental technician Ellen pushes the clay in new directions with her abstract forms that vary in density, color and translucence.
The imagined forms are evocative of undersea life, water, clouds, and geological formations. The relationship to the wall is explored in pieces like this 14.5″ by 14.5″ Scatter where holes are carved out of coral-like pieces of large flat pieces of polymer clay.
Here’s a post about an earlier exhibit. I love the vibrancy and size of this new series.
