The power of Sana Musasama’s work rises from her iconic forms. Her expressive clay works are not only free from the utilitarian form but they are a reaction to free us from concepts and judgments within bondage boundaries. Musasama is inspired by social issues and harsh or abusive conditions. Her sculptures are steeped in a deep compassion for those afflicted. Her Maple Tree Series refers to the abolitionists in the 19th century and the hopes that the Maple Syrup industry would help end slavery. The Unspeakable series deals with the circumcision of women in the world, denied the free expression of their own bodies. She sees her art as a personal instrument of change and proves that an artist can change lives for the better, while still creating beauty.
Sana is one of the exhibiting artists in our current exhibition, IN FORM: Contemporary Sculptural Ceramics, on view October 9 through November 30, 2016.
In Form takes a look at how contemporary ceramic forms have evolved since its freedom from function after World War II. Free to diverge from traditional pottery, these ceramists use humor, abstraction, social and political commentary as well as architectural forms.
