This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with ceramic artist and curator Jill Foote Hutton. Her totemic sculptures reference gods, monsters, and heros. She is interested in the psychological role these archetypes play in our society. She says of her work "There is an interminable distance between one human and another. In attempts to bridge the distance we climb through hierarchies and assumptions to find there are no monsters and there are no gods. Simultaneously we realize there are only monsters and there are only gods."
In the interview we discuss how art can be a catalyst for social engagement, the role collaboration plays in her studio, and her curatorial practice.
