Joan Lurie

Vessels Oblique

September 8 – October 27, 2013

The sculptures created by Joan Lurie in Vessels Oblique are ambiguous, denying function for the visual pleasure of multiplicity and repetition.  In crafting these bold yet delicate sculptures, Lurie manages to create forms that both echo nature while feeling fully otherworldly and unique.Through the use of porcelain and paper clay, Lurie is able to allude to a human presence while evading representation and maintaining an uncertainty within the work. Her vessels are a nexus of architecture, sculpture, and craft.

There will be an opening reception on Sunday, September 8, 2013 from 6 - 8 pm
