Binary Form: Ceramic Abstraction by Trey Hill and Andrea Moon
Missoula Art Museum - Details
December 02, 2016 - May 13, 2017
Binary Form: Ceramic Abstraction by Trey Hill and Andrea Moon
This exhibition at Missoula Art Museum brings together two Montana ceramists, Trey Hill and Andrea Moon. The pairing of artists generates dialogue about similarities and differences in the artists' formalist sensibilities. Binary Form showcases the variable strengths of ceramics as a sculptural medium and how two artists working in contradictory ways use form to express content. Each uses a single recognizable object as the basis to work through introspective themes. The craftsmanship, subtle surfaces, and elegant forms have holding power and encourage contemplation.
