“The only people I would care to be with now are artists and people who have suffered: those who know what beauty is, and those who know what sorrow is: nobody else interests me.”

Jamie Bates Slone: Phenotypes, 2014

I have developed a process utilizing my knowledge of various casting methods and glaze, chemistry to create forms made entirely glaze. The color and texture is appealing and repulsive at the same time. When viewed through a magnifying glass the surface resembles Scanning Electron Micrographs of cancer cells. The fragile and fleeting appearance of these pieces symbolizes the transient nature of human life. This series of glaze, casted hands represent the genetic passing of disease from generation to generation. It is my fear that my family’s history with cancer is somehow genetic.

HANDMADE TILES based on an original drawing by Portuguese artist Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso.

This is how this has turned out. I’m not entirely happy with the outcome, especially because one of the pannels is missing three pieces. But this was my first attempt at making and glazing tiles, and I’m looking forward to working with ceramics again.

Giuseppe Penone, Svolgere la propria pelle, 1970-71

From the Metropolitan Museum of Art:

Arte Povera was a uniquely Italian variant on the Conceptualism of the late 1960s and early ’70s. In place of skepticism and doubt, artists such as Michelangelo Pistoletto, Giovanni Anselmo, Giuseppe Penone, and others showed an unfailing confidence in the possibility of reclaiming the individual from the deadening effects of consumer culture; the group’s critical mouthpiece, Germano Celant, described the artist’s new role as “the free self-projection of human activity.”

In this piece, Penone photographed a glass slide pressed against different parts of his body until he had recorded his entire anatomy; the corporeal fragments (numbering more than one hundred) were then reassembled into a grid of tiny mercator projections mapping his personal landscape. The artist also created versions of this piece as a book and as printed images on photosensitized windows in an exhibition hall.
