MATAWAN, NJ - Stacey AS Pritchard’s latest work involves combining, drawing, sculpture, and painting with a variety of materials to create glimpses into small narratives, that touch on current events and especially the state of children in crisis. Currently the stories revolve around the themes of dislocation, war, emotion, and instinctual reactions to the current world. 

She uses hybrid animal human characters to express archetypes experiencing life through these landscapes. These hybrid human animal forms are inspired by shamanic thinking and are an expression of a belief that the disrespect and disconnect from our environment is symptomatic of the greed that drives human wars. These characters have come to life through drawings and as ceramic based mixed media sculptures. Ceramic, as a vehicle to express the more connected nature of the characters, also lends its organic and varied nature to the actual forms themselves, through the use of multiple clay bodies.
