Zoë Williams, “Crystal Magic”
February 22nd – March 22nd, 2020
Opening Reception: March 22nd, 2020, 6-8pm
Haven Gallery is pleased to present Zoë Williams for her first solo show, “Crystal Magic”. Zoë utilizes the art of needle felting to create imaginative animal sculptures. This new body of work features bold colored crystals and her signature white felt to portray the individuality of each piece. Her crystals are handmade in resin and curated with vivid hues and gradients; each one catches the light and celebrates the life energy and splendor of her beings. Often finding inspiration from dreams, folklore, mythology and the Collective Unconscious, Zoë carefully manipulates wool to achieve a high level of detail.
