New work in clay by Cheryl Brandon and Constance McBride

This work was born simply, out of recent events occurring around the country. It stems from a shared concern for humankind in this time of 24/7 communication. We believe expressing the shared humanity in people is an important way to support each other. We can’t ignore this sometimes cruel and frightening, yet sometimes wonderful and beautiful experience we all go through in life and contrary to the edited version of ourselves we share in traditional and social media, life’s moments are still messy and full of emotional turmoil.

Our goal was to capture the essence of a range of human experiences, from intensely personal to broader realities of our collective lives. We are showing ourselves as we are and celebrating the beauty of the human face.
