Statement:
San Francisco, CA – Seeking inspiration from the environment around them, artists Natasha Dikareva, Malia Landis, and Crystal Morey are interested in the mystery, allure, grace and whimsy found in the natural and imagined world we all share.

In their own voices, each artist uses the tradition of clay to capture human emotion and catalogue ideas of growth and adaptation, the real and the imaginary, delicacy and impermanence, flight and stillness, inner and outward self.

Influenced by ideas of nature, myth, memory, and the passage of time, these artists work to understand and show the space we all inhabit. The Three Realms is a contemplation of theses spaces: the land and its interconnected dependencies in humans, plants and animals, the sea in its mysterious ecosystems and continual cycles, and the sky in its unpredictable temperament and as a gateway to infinite space.
