FERRIN CONTEMPORARY is pleased to announce Evan Hauser, as the featured artist at Porches.

Evan Hauser is a ceramic artist utilizing the concepts of experiencing land and the way that land can directly influence a society. Originally from New Palestine, Indiana, Evan Hauser received his BFA from Herron School of Art + Design in Indianapolis, in 2014. While pursuing his BFA, Hauser was an artisan at Sincerus Bronze Art creating large-scale bronze sculptures. He received his MFA from the University of Montana, in Missoula, and is currently a resident artist at the Northern Clay Center in Minneapolis, MN.

β€œThe impact land has on the human experience goes beyond aesthetic beauty and resources; it constructs cultural and societal ideals in varying regions. My interest is within the relationship between man and land. Seeing the cultural shift in perspective of land, as I moved residence from Indiana to Montana, heightened my awareness of the differences with land across regions. Decisions made with land, such as what is private and what is public, are the starting point of my research.

When looking at a National Park such as Yellowstone, we are confronted by land that is supposedly wild and natural. In reality, the lands within the park are somewhat of a construct as the wildlife is managed, fires suppressed, and designated paths for the wandering tourist. This prescribed experience brings a foreseeable encounter that was once otherwise a land of discovery. Objects of representation prove our existence as a society and can be communicable icons. The objects chosen are to fit within my stereotypical view of a Euro-American experience coming to the American West.

Ceramic as a material allows me to create objects of permanence. This preservation of form can allow for a long-lasting concept that will continue to conduct dialogue with the viewer for any number of years forward. The concepts correlated with my objects are ones of continued growth and development as populations increase and our presence expands.”

LOOKING WEST

at The James J. Hill House in St. Paul, Minnesota.

March 6th- April 7th, 2019

Reception: March 29th, 6-8pm

A group exhibition exploring themes of the American West through ceramic art

β€œEarly America saw the Mississippi River as its western border. Looking West investigates the history, anthropologies, and landscapes of the American West through ceramic art.”

Within concept and visual, Looking West explores the current conversations taking place in and about the American West. Claytopia, (NCECA 2019 March 27th-30th) will reside on the geographical border of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Minnesota the same river that was the United States western border prior to the Louisiana Purchase in 1803.

Located inside the historical James J. Hill House at 240 Summit Ave in Saint Paul, Looking West will respond to the historical and contemporary conversations of the American West, including its traditions, history, landscape and cultural anthropologies. As the viewer walks the home, they are reminded of the vision James J. Hill had for Western Expansion and for the growth of the Great Northern Railway. The diversity of artists included will allow viewers to indulge in a dialogue that presents many various perspectives about what the West is now.

Artist Evan Hauser states, β€œWith the rise of Industrial America comes a threat to wilderness and untouched landscapes. When looking at a National Park such as Yellowstone, we are confronted by land that is supposedly wild and natural. In reality, the lands within the park are somewhat of a construct as the wildlife is managed, fires are suppressed, and designated paths exist for the wandering tourist. This prescribed experience brings a foreseeable encounter that was once otherwise a land of discovery.”
