THE LANGUAGE OF SHAPE & FORM
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 Ostuni makes. Exhibited through a pinch-mark landscape, smooth surfaces, as well as flat and broken color, she is interested in the juxtaposition created within each vessel. This juxtaposition is then exposed through each contrasted element of her pots. Her 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. Ostuni, 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.
