The Vase Project: Made in China – Landscape in Blue
November 9, 2014 - January 2015
The Project confronts a confluence of Western definitions of the artist/artisan, and addresses issues about industrialization and "development" identified with contemporary China. The collection of blue and white vessels challenges any radical dichotomy between "rote" mass production, and "unique" handmade objects. The vase sequence reflects individual invention and unique interpretations of the traditional landscape as motif.
