“True Love” further explores the themes encompassing the artist’s career, including emphasis on the relationship between humanity and Earth. Throughout the exhibition, Johan Creten displays an uncanny understanding of clay as a medium, further delving into the notion of the omnipotent, formidable force, “the Earth Mother”. The ultimate goal of “True Love” is to bring into light the lack, and need, of love — for The Mother, life, Earth, the future, and the divine. In essence, Creten produces a spiritual call-to-arms, recalling a time when humanity remained in constant touch with more sacred elements of the universe.
