Description

Hostler Burrows

Subtle color and velvety soft, tactile surfaces characterize the ceramic works of Turi Heisselberg Pedersen. Her sculptures radiate an inner tranquility while possessing striking spatial presence.Working within thematic series, she translates nature’s organic forms and patterns, such as bulbous plant roots or the structures of crystalline formations. Or she might look to the man-made environment for inspiration, such as architectural facade elements like balusters, and the spaces between them, experienced on her bicycle trips through town. At a time where spectacle most often grabs one’s attention, these works demonstrate a powerful insistence on the ability of discernible form to be emotive via precise proportioning, texture, and meticulously constructed color schemes.The objects retain an essence directly readable in their formal distillation and simplification, and they impart a challenging restlessness while demanding we hold our gaze.
