FORM OVER FUNCTION: CERAMIC SCULPTURES

FORM OVER FUNCTION: CERAMIC SCULPTURES Andrew Casto, Steven Young Lee, Jeffry Mitchell, Zemer Peled, Kim Simonsson, Dirk Staschke

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.

by LET’S (Peter Lynch, Courtney Barnebey, and Andy Arkley)

Exhibit: February 4th – April 22nd (Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-6pm)
Open House: Saturday, April 1st (6-10pm)

From February through April, 2017, MadArt welcomes LET’S, the art team of Peter Lynch, Courtney Barnebey, and Andy Arkley. Their exhibit, WE, is a collaborative, immersive, interactive installation that includes sculpture, light, music, and mapped video projections. Visitors can use control panels to trigger musical sequences which are synchronized to lights and video. Depending on the combination of buttons pressed, a different song and visual sequence will be created. The goal of WE is to create positive interactions between the people who engage with it.

This project is made possible by the support of MadArt and a 4Culture Tech-Specific Grant.
