Our final exhibition for 2017 features the narrative ceramic work of K Rhynus Cesark, who joins us on November 3rd for the opening reception of “Disquiet”. The artist maintains a studio practice in the Roaring Fork Valley and teaches encaustic painting and ceramics at Colorado Mountain College in Aspen. She received her MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, and is a fellowship recipient for the Colorado Council on the Arts. Her work is well recognized and exhibited nationally.
Cesark’s work is driven by content as well as material. She utilizes familiar iconography to explore her personal narrative. The artist’s work often contains houses, birds and branches rendered in clay and combined with other recognized objects such as cups or pillows. She combines these familiar objects while developing compositions and installations that tell stories. Through the deft merging of disparate objects, she, “...addresses emotions and predicaments, some calm and easy, others not so. My work explores balance and off balance which draws upon memory and process.”
Plinth Gallery curator Jonathan Kaplan notes the “underlying deep emotional connection between Cesark and her art. By investigating both material and content, the work in this exhibition is extremely satisfying.”
“Disquiet”, an exhibition of porcelain and mixed media sculpture including functional ceramics by K Rhynus-Cesark opens First Friday November 3. The gallery reception with the artist is 6-9pm and is free and open to the public.
