Galateea Contemporary Art invites you, on
Thursday, September 12, 2019, at 7 pm
, to the opening reception of the exhibition
US ceramic artist
is an exhibition in which
sculptural objects manipulate, abstract, and conceptualize the body’s abject material reality. The work investigates on how the mind collects and organizes fragmented images from memory in order to continuously recreate a sense of history and self. The intent of the work is to seduce and engage the viewer with temporal surfaces and organic formal abstractions that trigger meditation on the mutability of the mind and body.
The physicality of the ceramic process exploits the malleability of clay and its tendency to convey the elasticity and muscularity of the body. The forms themselves are often thrown on the potter’s wheel, altered and then assembled to achieve the desired fluidity and fragmentation of form. Surface treatments range from specially formulated low-fire glazes to atmospheric firings to mixed-media rubber, encaustic and resin applications. To further deny the interpretation of a coherent whole, the exteriors are often intentionally irregular and penetrative, creating a temporal experience of the body that’s familiar yet unsettling.
