SOWING AS THE WORLD ENDS is a stunning testament to the force and necessity of art as alarm… Mining personal experience for images that convey the sensitive and emotive unsayable, the artist renders them in clay, wood, and color in a complex and physically demanding process: vessels thrown, plywood cut to plane, clay carved, fired, broken, crammed, fixed, scribbled, and dash-stroked… It is a creative catharsis that is less yawp than war cry and generates work that surges at expressive and formal limits. — Mary Reilly
