BRAD EVAN TAYLOR SOLO AT NEW TAIPEI CITY YINGGE CERAMICS MUSEUM

BRAD EVAN TAYLOR SOLO AT NEW TAIPEI CITY YINGGE CERAMICS MUSEUM

A Rift is an opening made by splitting or cleaving, to burst open or split is ‘to rift’. Geologically it refers to a feature exposed through tearing the earth’s crust. Rift is an action which exposes the space between, and makes the hidden visible. These works are about transformation and metamorphosis. Details are ephemeral, the decay and transient nature of the matter reveals the underlying structure and provides clues concerning how the fragments came to be. The reorganization of material and form through process fascinates Taylor.

His MFA with an emphasis in Ceramic Sculpture is from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 1992. Currently, Taylor is Associate Professor of Art at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. He is a member of IAC, the International Academy of Ceramics, and maintains a studio in Salt Lake City, Utah, US.

WAIKIKI PARC FEATURES SHANNON WEBB
July 2 – September 25, 2015
Public Reception: Thursday, July 2, 2015 / 6-8pm
Parc Promenade Gallery, Waikiki Parc Hotel

Born and raised on O‘ahu, BFA student Shannon Webb had planned to concentrate on drawing and painting but became fascinated by clay’s tactile quality and the infinite possibilities that it offers. Webb states, “Creating and making things is and has always been an interest of mine. Being able to pull something from my imagination and flesh it out right in front of me is uniquely euphoric.” Flora, fauna, and water are the sources of inspiration for the organic shapes and fluid movement in her carved utilitarian ceramic vessels. She explores the relationship between form and design with a focus on the flow of line and the resulting positive and negative spaces.
