ELEMENTALS: WOMEN SCULPTING ANIMISM
NOVEMBER 1 - DECEMBER 13, 2014

Cavin-Morris is pleased to present an exhibition of living women artists working with
ancient concepts and materials in a completely contemporary way.

The following artists will have work in this exhibition:

Charissa Brock
Chizu Sekiguchi
Polly Adams Sutton
Dawn Walden
Judith Duff
Simcha Even-Chen
Melanie Ferguson
Deirdre Hawthorne
Mami Kato
Touri Maruyama
Sarah Purvey
Jane Wheeler
Monique Rutherford
Phyllis Sullivan
Lisa Hammond
Mieko Kawase
Sally Anderson
Susan Margin
Margaret Yuko Kimura
Nancy Brorby and others.

This exhibition expands on the idea of these artworks being part of a language that
expresses the animist essence of life. Animism is a belief in the souls of non-human
entities. It is spiritual rather than religious, intuitive rather than empirical. There is a
wide range of work in the exhibition from the intellectual intricacies of Phyllis
Sullivan’s force webs to the stark almost Neolithic but intensely worked roughness of
Sarah Purvey’s urns. Many of the more vessel-like pieces consciously charge the
spaces they contain, animating them by concealing them in shadow or stippling
them with surface light.
