Amelia Lockwood

Amelia Lockwood’s artworks trace connections from geological formations, esoteric map systems, and the constructs of modern-day board games. The overlapping aesthetics of both create structures in which the mind and body are aligned towards achieving a resolution through navigational strategies. Lockwood’s practice aims to highlight both the utilitarian nature of ceramics and the cultivation of the human spirit. In the exhibition, Lockwood’s candelabra sculptures act as metaphorical defenses against the dark. With their dancing flames and totemic strength, the symbolic and visual language of these works beget power and resilience.
