Monkey Mind/Monkey Mound (Drip Buddha)

900.00

Artist: Katarina Wong

Medium: Ceramic (glazed cast clay slip), 9"Hx9"x6", 2014. 

Katarina is a NYC-based interdisciplinary artist, curator, and the founder of MADE. In her most recent ceramic sculptures, she draws on aspects of her cultural heritages as a Chinese Cuban American to reference both Ming Dynasty export porcelains and common Cuban flora and fauna. Monkeys are often described by Buddhists as representing the incessant noise of our minds, and in this piece Katarina uses them to represent a yearning for connection despite their incessant chattering. The heads serve as a canvas of traditional Chinese watercolor imagery combined with dripped glazes seen in Tang dynasty ceramics.
