All Month Long:

 

Action Abstraction-Sculpture by Bill Barrett

OSU Campus.  Action Abstraction is a year-long display of six bronze sculptures by Bill Barrett, an internationally known artist widely considered one of today’s most celebrated sculptors.  The sculptures, strategically placed across campus, offer our university partners an introduction to public art as well as new opportunities to integrate the artist and his work into classes relating to sculpture, public art, and design.  Barrett’s work exudes movement and energy, along with a calligraphic sensibility.  His bronze sculptures address the relationship between positive and negative space with grace, elegance, and balance.  Through a delicate balance of form and content, the constructions transcend the stark aesthetics of minimalism with warmth and humanity.  Exhibit runs July 01, 2017 to July 01, 2018

 

Contingent Structures-Recent Ceramics by Brandon Reese

Tues – Sat 11:00 am – 4:00 pm, OSU Museum of Art, 720 S. Husband St.  This selection of new ceramic sculptures illustrates Brandon Reese's ongoing exploration of monumental open-worked constructions that reference archetypal and architectural structures such as towers, shelters, circular enclosures, and schematized human forms.  Reese works mostly with salt-fired stoneware, minimally colored.  His practice embraces the vagaries of the kiln, just as it relies on the artist’s intuitive and conditional engineering of his constituent parts into contingent wholes.  Reese’s primary structures reveal a post-minimalist array of formal strategies, including the use of modules, grids, and serial systems.  Working with a well-defined vocabulary of roughly geometric shapes (circles and rectilinear forms predominate), Reese builds his lattice-like sculptures with hand-hewn girders, struts, and trusses—a personal, artisanal answer to the precise, nineteenth-century, industrial approach epitomized by the Eiffel Tower.  Reese embraces a hybrid aesthetic, one that makes clear reference to architectural framing, to drawing, and to the conceptual vessel genre that came of age after the Second World War.  Reese’s forebears (and mentors) include Peter Voulkos, who first promoted the abstract sculptural potential of ceramics; Jun Kaneko, who pushed the physical limitations of the ceramic medium to prodigious scale; Don Reitz, who introduced salt firing to American ceramists; and John Balistreri, who continues the previous generation’s experiments with scale and process.  Exhibit runs July 20, 2017 to October 28, 2017.

11:00 am – 4:00 pm, OSU Museum of Art, 720 S.
