Curatorial Statement

Friend of Red Lodge Clay Center and Mata Ortiz, Marko Fields is the common factor to both groups and the individual who inspired our August exhibition and workshop. Marko’s work will be featured alongside that of the Mata Ortiz potters. Sharing his connection with Red Lodge Clay Center is central to his philosophy, “I believe that art making and the appreciation of art are profoundly important activities. As our society becomes increasingly inundated with technology, I believe that the beautiful handmade object will gain in value Ð intrinsic and economic Ð and importance. As life becomes more complex, art will continue to serve as an essential, visceral and therapeutic connection to the wonder of our humanity.”
