Cross MacKenzie Ceramic Arts is pleased to announce the new exhibition of ceramic work by well known sculptor Walter McConnell. McConnell will recreate his installation piece “The Theory of Everything” in our gallery.
This floor to ceiling work, made up of 100s of individual ceramic pieces; faux-Ming vases, animal sculptures and figurines, takes a week to assemble. Ultimately, the finished work transcends its kitsch and commercial elements to create an architectural monument referencing Hindi Stupas and is magically imbued with a sense of spirituality. McConnell’s artistic sensibility transforms Western pop cultural waste into an Eastern aesthetic worthy of worship and offerings.
