In her series Sacred Objects, Brown chooses to emphasize the malleability of the hand formed clay in order to demonstrate vulnerability and resilience. The body-like abstract sculptures are metaphorical portraits commemorating generations of individuals affected and shaped by the violence of racism and the internal strength required to endure. Gerald A. Brown is a multimedia artist who uses the associations inherent to materials to express ideas about race, gender, history, and the social conditions of contemporary life.

Low-fired terracotta and mixed media.
