Archie Bray Foundation:
2nd Year Resident exhibition
Join us for The Archie Bray Foundation 2nd year resident show. May 25th- July 15th. Opening Reception: June 1st 6pm-8pm
En Iwamura describes his work as “two-dimensional clay doodling”. Incorporating layers of drawing, his hand-built ceramic sculptures draw inspiration from both American and Japanese historical and pop-cultural references along with his own life experiences.
Ling Chun has a drive, a lust and a greed for color. She describes her ceramic forms as “playgrounds for glaze”, and she likes to challenge the rules and roles of ceramics as a material by disassociating the material from its stereotypical or culturally accepted uses
Myungjin (MJ) Kim blends the real and surreal in her drawings and paintings on porcelain forms. She creates narratives that run parallel to and address the complexity of the human experience. Working instinctively and drawing inspiration from European still-life paintings, she frequently uses human and animal figures as well as the birdcage, bird nest, terrarium and perfume jar in her forms and imagery
In making his functional pottery, Noah Riedel’s approach is more that of a designer than of an aesthetician. He values beauty in equal measure with any other element of design, but seeks a beauty that is spare in nature.
Nicholas Danielson creates objects that present food, offer conversations, invite touch and enrich space. His work grows from a deep love for historical communal wares and is inspired by their humility and unapologetic functionality.
