Contingent Structures: Recent Ceramics by Brandon Reese

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.

This exhibition is curated by Thomas Piché Jr., Director of the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art.
