The perception and imagination of the viewer become part of the art in New Form, this series of ceramic sculptures by Kevin Callaghan. From a distance, one might see these works as the walls of a village, and imagine these structures as the potential mock-ups for a utopian city. Up close, these small sculptures—each of which is constructed within the constraints of its 30-by-30 centimetre base — draw the viewer in, with porous texture and unexpected nooks where the mind can wander.
