Known for her melancholic sense of eerie fantasy, Hope Atherton creates a surreal world inspired by her juvenile engagement in Fantasy Pop culture and the rustic nature she encountered while growing up on a small farm in Virginia. In this ceramic piece, Atherton creates a moody atmospheric form that is glazed with matte black, yielding something that could be found in a desolate and otherworldly environment. Hope Atherton lives and works in New York. Her work has been nationally exhibited with highlights including the Greater New York exhibition at P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City.
