LAVISH AND LUSH
WHERE: August 11- September 29, 2012
WHERE: Baltimore Clayworks, 5707 Smith Ave., Baltimore
Baltimore Clayworks is honored to be hosting Lavish and Lush a traveling show from the National Council on the Education for Ceramic Arts conference. We are excited to present such a tremendous opportunity to showcase the best in ceramic arts.
“Lavish and Lush” is an exhibition of experimental sculptural works and small installations that are both excessive and obsessive in concept, composition, and materiality. Each artist in this exhibition possesses a lavish and lush aesthetic, creating prolific works wrought with sumptuous surfaces, ornate renderings, and sensual textures that are both visual and tactile feasts. Like feast on food, one feels comforted and nourished, but if the consumption continues the experience shifts uncomfortably to one of over consumption and repulsion. The works in this show straddles this edge with an opulent surplus of form and surface.
