Porcelain Works by Jessica Stoller

January 8, 2014


opens tomorrow, Jan 9, 6-8p:

 Jessica Stoller
P.P.O.W Gallery, 535 W22nd St., NYC (3rd Fl)

Stoller uses clay and the grotesque as a vehicle to explore the constructed, often idealized world of femininity, gathering imagery across cultural lines and histories, often fixating on the subjugation of the female body. Porcelain is her primary media, a historically weighted material that is inevitably linked to desire, mystery and consumption. The sculptures in Spoil spill out of decorative materiality into the Rococo maximalist mentality of pageantry, pomp and artifice that are often overlooked as frivolous ploys.  Through the synthesis of the symbolic female, culturally, historically and bodily, Stoller allows feminist language to expand within her work leaving room for subversion, defiance and play. Stoller uses a myriad of techniques to create her highly detailed works. First, hand-building the porcelain forms and incorporating porcelain slip, or liquid clay to coat fabric which burns away through controlled firing, leaving draping lace and flesh-like fabric ribbons.  Stoller’s knowledge of the medium allows her to manipulate the clay creating  a wide-range of effects: piped cakes, dripping syrup and rows of spikes and interlocking chains undergo multiple firings to develop each richly colored surface.  The resulting works embody a powerful sense of oppositions which blur the lines between real and imitated, normal and abnormal, perceived beauty and the bodily abject. - thru Feb 8

Hong Kong-based sculptor Johnson Cheung-shing Tsang created this awesomely imaginative and beautifully executed ceramic piece, which depicts a mighty dragon encircling and constricting a vase with its long body. Entitled A Painful Pot, Tsang describes his creation by saying that he, “wanted to create a porcelain sculpture that expressed how he felt about his country.”

Tsang’s first solo exhibition will take place later this year at the Taiwan Yingge Ceramics Museum from December 7, 2013 to Januart 19, 2014.

Visit Twisted Sifter to view a wonderful series of process photos showing how Johnson Cheung-shing Tsang made this astonishingly detailed piece.
