Gerald A. Brown is a multimedia artist who uses the associations inherent to materials to express ideas  about race, gender, history, and the social conditions of contemporary life. She creates installations and assemblages using drawing, symbols, signage, photography, and found materials; however, clay is truly central and essential to her artistic practice. In her series Sacred Objects, Brown chooses to emphasize the malleability of the hand formed clay in order to demonstrate vulnerability and resilience. The body-like abstract sculptures are metaphorical portraits commemorating generations of individuals affected and shaped by the violence of racism and the internal strength required to endure.
