The futuristic blends with the primordial in the work of British sculptor Anna Reading. Her otherworldly forms call to mind remnants of a crashed space capsule overgrown with foreign matter or submerged manmade structures that have succumbed to marine accretions.
Paula Winokur’s sculptures, which resonate with dignified authority and considered focus, take porcelain to its limits and transform it beyond expectations. Organic forms built with a sense of restraint declare her resolve through thoughtful attention to detail.
Trevor King’s ceramic sculptures aim to understand utility. Over the course of his career, he has quietly but steadily been building a body of work that is autobiographical, sure in its handling, and aware of the contemporary art scene.
Desde la ciudad de Rosario, la artista plástica Carla Beretta trabaja un corpus de obra que trasciende los límites de lo bidimensional, experimentando con trabajos con una fuerte impronta del grabado y los textiles, superando los soportes tradicionales—por ejemplo la planimetría del papel—para invadir el espacio con objetos e instalaciones.
Lenka Clayton’s work is a network of connections based in the narrative and poetic potential embodied in objects. Each of her dynamic projects offers a tangible link to stories and geographic locations. She connects communities and individuals while offering a bit of magic, which can often be found in the smallest places.
Fernando Casasempere has worked with porcelain and stoneware for four decades, introducing rich textures into his surfaces. His poetic, abstract forms are partly inspired by pre-Columbian art and partly by the landscape of his native Chile.
A blanket of fine, dry snow greeted the wallers on their first morning of work in Kansas City. It was the beginning of March, and Andy Goldsworthy, with the help of a select crew led by four veteran U.K. wallers and two handfuls of local stone movers, was conjuring up his latest site-specific installation, Walking Wall, at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
Sarah Lucas has a feeling for materials that quite simply takes your breath away, a formidable command over sculptural form, a knack for striking compositions and juxtapositions, an abiding interest in charged and often politically incorrect content, and a deliciously wicked sense of humor.
Desmaterializar, descartar, recuperar, romper, arrugar—palabras que nos acercan al trabajo de Julia Clutterbuck, una joven artista que plantea escenarios abstractos compuestos a partir de composiciones superpuestas de materia.
