Elozua Awarded Groot Grant

In 2015, Elozua received a Virginia A. Groot Foundation grant for a new body of work. The R&D series of mixed media sculpture incorporates glass, ceramics, and steel. They are an extension of an exploration of Abstract Expressionist painting. Colors and shapes from different paintings were sampled and combined using CAD software to create new combinations. From these designs, welded steel armatures were built and covered with terra cotta and glaze. After firing, blown-glass shapes were affixed to the sculptures. “I find the tension between the fractured ceramic and the reflective glass fascinating. There is a feeling of beauty born out of decay,” said Elozua.
