Mind/body duality. The human place in the natural world. Clark University’s Elli Crocker (Studio Art) delves into these central motifs with her latest exhibit, In the Flesh, an evocation of the elemental connections that exist between the earth, the cosmos, and all living things.

“Our living bodies are supported by the spirit and matter of all that came before us,” Crocker says. “We stand on layers of life accumulated over millennia, knowing that we too will become part of these strata of spirit, flesh, sand, soil, stone, and stardust.” 

Crocker has been actively exhibiting for forty years and has received numerous commissions, awards, and artist residencies. Her art has been featured in various publications, including New American Paintings, Volume 50. Last year, Crocker received a major grant from the Higgins School of Humanities to produce a Catalogue Raissoné, a comprehensive chronicle of her artwork to date.

Please contact the Higgins School for hours and availability during the Spring 2020 semester.

This exhibit is co-sponsored by the Higgins School of Humanities and the Studio Art Program at Clark University.
