Dark Light: the Micaceous Ceramics of Christine Nofchissey McHorse is the first traveling exhibition by the Navajo artist. McHorse is considered to be one of the most innovative forces in Native American pottery today.
By creating vessel-based art that is undecorated and abstract, her work relates more to modern sculpture than to Southwestern culture. As a result, she has been collected both by contemporary art and Native arts collectors. The mica-rich clay McHorse harvests from the riverbeds in Northern New Mexico fires to a black sheen that creates both sensuous shadows and highlights on her architect-tonic forms.
This exhibition surveys her journey and gathers some of the finest works of the Dark Light series from 1997 to the present. Dark Light: the Micaceous Ceramics of Christine Nofchissey McHorse is organized by The Ceramic Arts Foundation, New York, NY, in association with Clark + Del Vecchio, Santa Fe, NM, and is curated by Garth Clark and Mark Del Vecchio.
