Intersect presents a collection of sculpture made by Michael Moore since January 2018. It researches mapping of locality. It examines how clay forms interplay and balance, exploring precarious constructions. Grid forms reflect journeys around places of personal importance. Clay forms explore movement and contortion, seeking out unusual, abstracted structures.
