Mineral Research Laboratory
The artistic and research-heavy work of Lana Ruellan focuses on the ceramic medium, enamels and mineral chemistry. Engaging with humorous experiments that link art to geology, Ruellan recomposes precious gems that are chemically precise yet subtly artificial. The representation of nature that appears in these ongoing experiments offers us a vocabulary of simple shapes combined with a poetic taxonomy. With her use of extensive craft expertise, Ruellan’s delicate works unfold before our eyes, revealing a fascinating chronicle of nature.
