Surreal hybrids: surrealist ceramic sculptures evoking humanities by Adrian Arleo

Montana-based artist Adrian Arleo creates intriguing surrealist ceramic sculptures that combine the human body with animals and plants.

For over thirty years, my sculpture has combined human, animal, and natural imagery to create a kind of emotional and poetic power. Often there’s a suggestion of a vital interconnection between the human and non-human realms; the imagery arises from associations, concerns, and obsessions that are at once intimate and universal. The work frequently references mythology and archetypes in addressing our vulnerability amid changing personal, environmental, and political realities. By focusing on older, more mysterious ways of seeing the world, edges of consciousness and deeper levels of awareness suggest themselves.
