Liquids, Creams and Gels. An Online Exhibition...
“Liquids, Cream and Gels,” as you know, is what they ask you to present while passing through the security line at the airport. Well, we are taking that concept to a whole new level by infusing it with ceramic notions of love and other potions and making it for the basis for a show. The curated online show of Liquids, Creams and Gels shall coincide with the frigid month of February that we North Americans dedicate to the complete range of noble to ignoble notions of amour. This exhibition will be ever-so-loosely centered around the time old tradition of vessel-making and containment that we, as ceramic artists, seem to embrace with open, wet and muddy arms. Beyond that it is our hope that the combined concept of vessel + containment + relationships is taken to a whole new level by the participating artists. There is no safety net or zone here…predictable is not welcome, but subversion is a most welcome entity. It is time to explore galore and push the notion of lotions and potions to the limit and make something that addresses this thing called “amorous” and turn it into something deviously glamorous. So please feel free to liberally apply to your eyeballs and sensory spots, this curated lotion of Canadian Ceramic artists both emerging and established...we're sure their work will heighten your art viewing experience.
This exhibition will, again, be hosted online and in conjunction with the Gynocratic Art Gallery, a fabulously nomadic, Canadian effort directed by Danielle Hogan of Fredericton, New Brunswick and Mariko Paterson of Forage Studios in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The exhibition will be hosted trough Forage Studios website for the month of February, but links will be made available through the Gynocratic Art Gallery too.
