Ferrin Contemporary in the news

Bill Rogers, Managing Editor of C-File, reviews RE-Reanimate, Repair, Mend and Meld at Ferrin Contemporary. 

“The aesthetics of and philosophical questions surrounding repairs were explored in-depth with RE-Reanimate, Repair, Mend and Meld. The exhibition, originally presented at the New York Ceramics & Glass Fair, explored different inventive ways people have repaired ceramics in the past. It pushes that thread into discussions about repairs that rise above their station and make a work more unique and pleasing. There are even a few works that border on Theseus’ paradox, with some “repairs” being two entirely different plates fused together like a porcelain Frankenstein.”

How can these visitors between the second and third dimensions enhance one another? How can the form of a vessel aid the painter and vice versa?”

Kathleen Whitney, in her article “Cristina Córdova: Involuntary Dialogs” in Ceramics Monthly, February 2016 issue, writes, “For centuries, both painting and sculpture were synonymous with the representation of figures; the earliest images we know are figurative. The foundation of Cristina Córdova’s work lies squarely within this global tradition.”
