Contemporary Clay

Opening Reception | February 8, 2013 | exhibit though April 12, 2013
Daniel Bare & Valerie Zimany | Jerry Morris | Elaine Ng | Mark Wong 

CERAMICA features five contemporary artists breaking the mold in their handling of this ancient medium.

Mark Wong's conceptual "1,000 Platters" Project highlights the artists penchant for dimensional and output challenges with clay, a twist on the artist's own cultural tradition of folding and dispersing 1,000 origami cranes. An installation of all 1,000 platters will cover the walls from floor to ceiling and even wrap around into the adjoining COPPeR office. At the close of the exhibit, the 1,000 ceramic platters will be dispersed to collectors all over the world.

Daniel Bare & Valerie Zimany will partner to create an original raw clay installation for this exhibit. Building off past raw clay installations at multiple venues, GOCA is excited to sponsor the creation of a completely new large-scale installation for this exhibit. More: 

Jerry Morris  creates complex and often suspended installations involving numerous clay and mixed-media components which when combined have tremendous impact on the viewer. Morris is creating an entirely new site-specific work for this exhibit.

Elaine K. Ng's work "explores ideas of impermanence, transition, and the uncomfortable space between destinations-those moments after leaving what once was, before arriving at what will be." Ng's site-specific installations employ a spare but lush visual lexicon, communicating incredibly evocative ideas using simple clay, string and fibers.
