"Art has been an obsession of mine since I was a little girl. It represents a part of me that I have a hard time placing into words therefore I create. It is intuitive and reactionary process. Often I have a loose image of what I want to create, but allow for freedom to respond to materials and form in the production of the work. I use human beings, flora and fauna because it is a direct way to illustrate emotions. I use clay because it is a direct way to work with form, volume and surface."

Prospectus and to enter:
Deadline: February 6, 2017
Artist Talk, Christopher Reid Flock: January 14, 2017 • 7:30pm
Opening Reception: January 15, 2017 • 2-5pm with remarks at 2:30pm
Follow Christopher Reid Flock on Instagram and Facebook. There's a good chance there will be a live video of the artist talk on Facebook.
As an experimental ceramic artist, Christopher Reid Flock’s work is profoundly influenced by the significant time that he spent in Japan and the mentorship that he received from some of Canada’s most respected potters. Among other accolades, Flock was the recipient of the Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramics in 2014. Although this ambitious exhibition will include some works from his earlier career, it will feature more prominently his large-scale, installation-based works that whimsically ‘play’ with notions of function while merging rapid prototyping with classical clay process.
A companion exhibition will feature works by Flock’s mentors Bruce Cochrane, Diane Nasr O’Young and Kayo O’Young.

"My work explores questions of space, public policies, inclusion, exclusion, and privilege. From urban, to suburban, to rural, I explore the social dynamics of people and the spaces they inhabit. Specifically, I find inspiration through public spaces designed for specific use, and abandoned properties that are both created by these communities and then collectively discarded."
"Comprised of tableware, vessels, and wheel-thrown sculpture my ceramic work is built upon recurring forms and surfaces produced from my throwing technique. My ceramics are influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement to make simply designed hand-made objects with minimal decoration. This influence has brought me to a place in my work where I intently focus my making on form and surface. Form and surface are the most important elements of my work because they are the greatest expression of my skill as a potter. With form and surface I want to draw attention to the liveliness of wheel-thrown ceramics. It is important that the decorative elements are unmistakably left by the hand. Ultimately, I want my ceramic work to embody the personable qualities I possess: proud… strong… thoughtful… "
