The thesis exhibition "Lost Light" by Sharon Murray, is reminiscent of a foggy afternoon on the Oregon coast. A chance photograph taken by the artist inspired the ceramic sculptures and wall pieces. Taken as a group these works explore the poetic theme of the process of natures? continuous recycling and continuity. The pieces are intended to reach beyond their representation and allude to universal microcosm. The works further the associations between the pieces and the themes, with some pieces directly incorporating specific images and bits of language. "Lost Light" is intended to give the viewer a glimpse of a mental journey and an opportunity to begin their own journey.
