MARCH 4 – APRIL 8, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 4th, from 4:00 – 7:00 pm

Artist in attendance

Winston Wächter Fine Art Seattle is proud to announce Form Over Function: Ceramic Sculptures by Andrew Casto, Steve Young Lee, Jeffry Mitchell, Zemer Peled, Kim Simonsson and Dirk Staschke. Please join us for our opening reception on Saturday, March 4th, 4 – 7 pm. Artists Jeffry Mitchell and Dirk Staschke in attendance.

Quite often when we hear the term “ceramics”, we think of a vase, a cup, a bowl. Today’s ceramicists are pushing far beyond the traditions of the medium and creating innovative forms, which happen to be made from clay. Selections by artists Andrew Casto, Steve Young Lee, Jeffry Mitchell, Zemer Peled, Kim Simonsson and Dirk Staschke demonstrate how diverse these sculptures can be.

Each artist uses the medium in a drastically unique way. Casto creates gilded expressionist gestures; Lee makes beauty out of purposeful mishap; Mitchell imagines playful stylized elephants; Peled transforms shards of clay into organic growths; Simonsson’s figures enter straight from the depths of the forest; and Staschke’s vanitas paintings literally melt away.

Collectively, these artists have exhibited in England, Israel, France, Finland, Korea, Spain, Croatia, Austria, Slovenia, Belgium, China, and Japan, and are included in the collections of the Harvard Fogg Museum, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the National Museum of Norway, The Seattle Art Museum, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Shigaraki Museum of Contemporary Ceramic Art, among many others.
