Singular Spaces: The Power And The Passion Of Spanish Art Environments, Jo Farb Hernandez Dec 2015

Singular Spaces: The Power And The Passion Of Spanish Art Environments, Jo Farb Hernandez

Jo Farb Hernández

The art environments of Spain – like those the world over – display an astounding conceptual creativity and a vernacular, seat-of-the-pants approach to construction that makes use of locally available found, natural, and recycled objects as well as fabricated components built from scratch. Each result is unique, revealing each creator-builder’s interests, challenges, and concerns as they have developed over the course of a lifetime; as such, it is easy to understand why art environments are so complex. And because we are able to physically enter into and explore the constructions as visitors, we complete the artworks in the same way as ...

Tradition And Innovation: Extremeñan Connections And Collaborations, Jo Farb Hernandez Mar 2010

Tradition And Innovation: Extremeñan Connections And Collaborations, Jo Farb Hernandez

Jo Farb Hernández

The writer discusses the collaboration between California artist Sam Hernández and the Moreno León family from Extremadura, Spain, who create tinajas, monumental ceramic storage vessels. While Hernández approached this collaboration with admiration for the elegance of the traditional tinaja, and respect for the Moreno León ceramists, the innovation in superimposing his own images led to a totally new set of sculptures that, though linked to his earlier oeuvre, are markedly different from it. By recontextualizing the tinaja into a contemporary narrative through the overlay of his chosen subject matter, he shifted the collaboration into a new territory, as, at the ...

Don Reitz: Out Of The Ashes, Jo Farb Hernandez Dec 2008

Don Reitz: Out Of The Ashes, Jo Farb Hernandez

Jo Farb Hernández

The writer discusses the work of ceramic sculptor Don Reitz on the occasion of an exhibition of his work at the Natalie and James Thompson Art Gallery at San Jose State University in San Jose, California, from October 28 to December 19, 2008. Over the past 50 years, Reitz has worked unflaggingly, investigating different clays, types of firing, and ceramics traditions. This master technician and unique potter opts to dramatically alter his thrown forms, manipulating classic contours by pushing, pulling, stabbing, marking, and painting.
