Atlantic Gallery is pleased to announce DOUBLE VISION, an exhibition of ceramic sculpture and photography presenting an artist's view of the world around her in two distinct disciplines and mediums.

The exhibition juxtaposes the tactile qualities and spatial experience of hand-built clay vessels with the two-dimensional plane of the photograph, where the viewer looks through the flat surface into a perceived space. Walton has pushed through the constraints of her sculptural work to search for visual meaning, contemplating

this Georgia O'Keeffe quote, "I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for."

This new way of working deepens her observations and explores how one artist finds meaning in what she sees using different sets of tools. All of the photographic images were made within a half-mile radius of her studio in Montauk, NY, allowing a timely interchange between working with clay and her camera.

Writing about Walton's sculptures, Pat Rogers stated in the Hamptons ArtHub: "It's difficult to know where to look first: the colorful interiors that gleam or the aggressively textural exteriors in nuanced monotones found in Joan Walton's fine art ceramics. Moving between the two doesn't seem to solve the dilemma as each distinct area commands time and attention. Taken together, the works present an unusual pairing that contributes to a unique and intriguing whole. 

Joan Walton received her BFA with honors from Pratt Institute, majoring in photography. She began working in clay after a career in art direction and photo editing. Her award-winning ceramic work has been widely exhibited in the U.S., and as a visiting artist in China and Korea.
