"Ceres Gallery present Michelle Stone's intriguing and beautiful sculpture installation. Her constructed, abstract hybrid forms live, mutate, combine and transform themselves into a textured, colorful, menagerie of creatures and in doing so transform the gallery into a world of her creation. These engaging constructions create a primal experience as they evolve and regenerate from fragments into a community of relationships. The arrangements are unpredictable and remind one of the rhythms found in nature even though they are contained in a man-made space within the gallery walls. There is harmony as they evolve from a dark shadow side of nature and travel towards the light. Stone meanders through the cycles of growth, transformation and decay as it relates to humanity."
