THE LANGUAGE OF SHAPE & FORM – DOMINIQUE OSTUNI

Opening Reception
Friday, June 2, 2017

“A connection with the physicality and intellectual rigor of making objects is demonstrated through an ever growing importance of labor through each pinch found within the vessels that I make. Exhibited through a pinch-mark landscape, smooth surfaces, as well as flat and broken color, I am interested in the juxtaposition created within each vessel. This juxtaposition is then exposed through each contrasted element of my pots. My work’s primary use is that of a utilitarian object, but one in which creates an awareness of the subconscious relationship between hands and object. I, as a maker, would like to command attention to create a different type of relationship between the viewer and object through the slow and intimate process of exposing the maker’s hand and the rigorous process of pinching visual landscapes.”

A BEGINNER’S BULL – BYRNE KLAY

Opening Reception
Friday, June 2, 2017

“For the past 22 years, Klay has been studying and practicing Buddhism, which can now be seen for the first time in a visual diary of his experience with the daily practice. He creates this visual art on the road and in between gigs. Now, his first publically available collection of works, entitled ‘A Beginner’s Bull’, will be on display at 42 Maple Contemporary Art Center in Bethlehem from June 2nd to July 3rd. Each piece in this collection is a variation on traditional Buddhist motifs which originated in India and China.”
