About Christa Gebhardt´s
ceramic work

The ceramic work of Christa Gebhardt gather the alleged extremes of our existence into a visually voluptuous, symmetrical whole. She defines the manifestation of being using objects of deep-seated archaic appeal in a free, personal process of form-finding marked by a light-sculpting, baroque force. Lightness is paired with gravity, birth embodies death, centred peace (centred tranquillity) lies in wild, primeval shapes, and her earthen works are encircled by a mythical aura.

Augustin Martin Noffke, 2019
