Ceramic Top 40 Review

by Anthony Merino in Ceramics Monthly

“Ceramic Top 40: New and Selected Works presents a specific collection of the most innovative artists working with clay. While this casts the exhibition as subjective, it has to be, as no selection of 40 artists could be a true cross section. This does not diminish the overall impact of viewing the show however, as the majority of the work in the exhibition is both unique and engaging.”

“Sergei Isupov’s Surreal Ceramics Combine Paintings with Sculpture” by Anna Carey in Hi Fructose, The New Contemporary Art Magazine.

“Russian-born artist Sergei Isupov investigates binaries in human relationships — male and female, good and evil, beautiful and grotesque. Using clay as both a material for three-dimensional expression and as a canvas for his illustrations, Isupov capitalizes on all properties of what he finds to be the most open medium. He sculpts human and animal figures, and then adds illustrations in glaze. The paintings diffuse into the clay’s surface, like tattoos on his sculptures’ skin. Taken together, the two- and three-dimensional elements of his work establish a compacted but powerful scene of emotions and narratives.”

Published by the Society of Contemporary Craft in conjunction with his exhibition “Bridge 13: Jason Walker.”

The brochure includes biographical information, images, and an essay by William L. Fox.

“A growing number of artists tread warily along the boundaries of culture and nature as the human footprint becomes increasingly obvious and inescapable, and the ironies multiply. … Walker’s work is a form of public prayer for our safety and preservation. How fortunate and useful it is that the sculptures are also beautiful.” — William L. Fox, Director of the Center for Art + Environment, Nevada Museum of Art, Reno, Nevada

“Until fairly recently, the term ‘Chinese export ware’ was associated with a one-sided niche art market favored by Western collectors with a penchant for Oriental aesthetics… Industry insiders, however, have been noticing a resurgent interest in this particular genre of ceramics over the past few years.”
