IN OUR NATURE
SOLO EXHIBITION BY CRYSTAL MOREY

Opening Reception: Saturday, June 9th, 6-9pm
Closing Tea & Artist Talk: July 15th, 3-6pm (talk at 4pm)
IN OUR NATURE SHOW STATEMENT
Crystal Morey will explore the impact and stresses mankind has imposed on animal life and our natural world. She will pay particular attention to species that have been endangered or have become extinct due to urban development, industrial agriculture, over-hunting and loss of habitat. She will also examine how these changes may affect human psyches, emotions, and actions.
Crystal will look at the way mankind interacts with the natural world and the predator versus prey relationship that they share. Nature has always governed human and animal life; evolution had its own timeline and plants and animals coexisted. Crystal will address and examine the acceleration that has occurred in natural lifecycles caused by technology and human growth. One way for us to gauge our effect on the earth is through the health of other species around us.
Crystal wants to bring awareness to these ideas through sculpture that expands beyond what is true and what we know into an enigmatic realism that is of another world. Through combining human-like figures with ghostly animals she will draw a narrative of connectivity showing the relationship that exists between humans, animals, and nature. She will investigate the delicate, interwoven dependencies all creatures share, and the strengths and mysteries found in our world.

I am working on a series of little sculptures to be cast in silver and made into necklaces that bring good luck! Here is the first one!
This beautiful tooth necklace is not only good luck but it is magical! Hand made in Oakland California by artist Crystal Morey, this necklace is solid sterling silver with a sterling silver chain. The tooth is hand fabricated and cast in silver and then the tip is dipped in 24K yellow gold. This creates a beautiful contrast of silver and gold that goes with anything and compliments everything!
Available on etsy!
