CL Critic Okla Jones, III Recommends: Zipporah Camille Thompson, MOCA GA’s 2021/2022 Working Artist Project Fellow, has a solo exhibition titled the ocean wept rainbows on display through the beginning of next year. Thompson is a ceramist, weaver, sculptor and activist based in Atlanta, who explores alchemical transformations through clay and textiles, eliciting social change through her work. Curated by Jordan Carter, curator at Dial Art Foundation in New York, this show was put together in hopes of creating a perfect juxtaposition between art and emotion - both for the artist herself, as well as the viewer. “ ,white:Deep and boundless love, like the depths of the ocean,” Thompson wrote of the exhibition. "Arial Unicode MS", sans-serif">“Endless grace and beauty like that of the sky, flowing infinitely like a river.” — OJ
