New ceramic work from Los Angeles-based artist and activist Courtney Mattison (previously featured here). “Confluence (Our Changing Seas V)” took over a year to make and marks Mattison’s largest project to date. Now part of the permanent collection of the US Embassy in Jarkarta, Indonesia, the site-specific installation pays homage to Indonesia’s coral reefs while highlighting the threat of climate change and coral bleaching. As Mattison states:
“I hope that the idea of creating such a monumental, intricately hand-detailed ceramic sculptural installation inspires a sense of excitement in viewers about the connections we share to coral reefs while empowering individuals and policymakers to act to conserve.”
