The Call for Entry

There was no call for entry, as this was an invitational exhibit.

The Ceramic Art Pieces

This artist statement is from a post of a gallery called Sherry Leedy:  “What started as my curiosity for pottery and vessel has extended to include painting and sculpture, and my present work is evidence of that evolution. I believe that color interaction can elicit new ways of seeing so I have dedicated the last five years to its study. Frequently, I elect to stage conflict by introducing an assertive color field to an equally emphatic form. This friction augments and enriches perceptions of space.”

On all these pieces you can see Peter’s intent to create an “assertive color field”. When I saw these pieces my eyes focused so much on the colored part of the pieces, that the rest seemed to disappear. Maybe this was the “new way of seeing” Peter wanted to create? In addition to the color, the subtle shapes are also innovative.  For more of his works check out his Instagram profile.
