Charlie Mabry explores themes that blur the line between nature and culture, how the fantastic reflects the way we feel about reality, and the ever-present link between future and past. He utilizes the imagery of natural and historical forms combined with elements of literature, science fiction, and fantasy to convey a possible future. Mabry's principal medium is clay because of its workability and many associations that strengthen the themes in his work - such as its connection to utility, domesticity, and artifacts of our most distant past.
