Cedar City, UT
World renowned ceramics artist Andy Nasisse presents an exhibit of landscape photography and ceramics sculptures which mirror the images found in the rock formations.
Nasisse describes his work: “For quite some time now I have been using the figure, the vessel, and the landscape as a primary image (or mythic image) through which I could express some thoughts about the human condition. I have tried to present a unified theme that ties together work that ranges from small scale utilitarian pots to large scale vessels and figures. I work improvisationally, finding figures in the material, and developing them into an image, or a narrative that seems to have life. I like to think of these figures as part of a family of images that find their way through my hands into the outer world. At their best they present an enigmatic expression, somewhere on the edge between whimsy and fear.”
Nasisse has a long and prolific career as an artist, professor, lecturer and author.
