Solastalgia

Year: 2010Artist: Categories: ,

Heavily influenced by the conflict between our romantic ideal of living in unity with nature, our contemporary impact on the environment is displayed in each piece, hand sculpted out of porcelain. This is solastalgia, and it describes distress in environmental change.

This American artist creates delicate porcelain sculptures, preferring porcelain for its luminous and ghostly qualities, while also relying on its strength and ability to show fine texture detail.
