ARTIST STATEMENT

Gallant's ceramic sculptures and mixed-media installations are similar to inter-related microcosms. Whether a mineral-inspired miniature or a panned out installation, the one underlying concept that permeates her art is interdependence. Her work often revolves around nature, which for her is a great source of inspiration, wonder, and inquiry. Through her sculptures, Gallant muses on the impact of human activity and the little space nature occupies in our urban life.
