"Dark Garden" (above) in a dramatically lit, quirky vault-like space at the Erie Art Museum, Erie, PA

"At the heart of Linda Huey's work in sculpture and pottery is an exploration of the natural environment, its sustainability and its fragility.  At the Fuller, Huey fills a gallery with huge plant forms that could be mysterious night blooms from a climate zone no one has ever visited.  These stalks, seed pods, leaves, and flowers are constructed of clay, recycled metal, and debris, and their world includes elements such as broken antennae and macabre gnomes.  With her choice of form, scale, and materials, Huey provokes questions about the balance between growth and decay, and the tension between nature and culture."  American Craft, April/May 2013

“Dark Garden” has been traveling to various venues:

It has been a great honor to have a contemporary composer, Erik Lindgren, write music in response to Dark Garden when it was installed at the Fuller Craft Museum.  Also, at the same time, a video artist, Wu So Fai, who is very adept at special effects and interpretation, made a great video that corresponds with Erik’s music.  Many thanks to both of them!
