  • About the ExhibitionThe Zealot’s Elixir is a group show curated by Doubleparlour. All work is in sculpture or three­dimensional form in a variety of mediums including ceramic, resin, wood, and found objects. The impressive roster of artists includes international artists as well as many from the thriving local Bay Area community. They were chosen by Doubleparlour because of their work holds emotional and intellectual qualities that engage the viewer, as well as a commitment to perfecting their craft. The theme of the show is based false prophets and snake oil. The artists each present a unique interpretation on this theme that embodies trickery, faith, hope, and lies.
  • Through the “great acceleration”, which has been taking place since the industrial revolution, human beings have become the biggest variable in the changing nature of the natural world. The way we develop our societies has a direct and irreversible impact on the natural ecosystems that we are continually encroaching upon. Crystal’s works deal with these conflicts, whilst also referencing the ways in which ancient civilizations or peoples viewed wildlife and nature. This influence upon her sculpture has given the pieces a totemic feel that immediately calls to mind our changing attitudes toward the beings that we share the planet with.
