Schema: A journey through traditional patterns and imagery
october 2, 2015 - January 23, 2016
Belger Crane Yard Gallery presents Schema: A Journey Through Traditional Patterns and Imagery featuring the work of ceramic artist Melanie Sherman. Sherman’s porcelain work is lavishly glazed, painted with elaborate patterning, and embellished with gold. Her lustrous surfaces combine traditional china paint techniques with modern imagery, elevating subjects as banal as underwear to a level of preciousness. Inspired by recent artistic residencies in Hungary and China, Schema reflects Sherman’s love of ornamentation and her fascination with 18th century European porcelain.
