Romer Young Gallery is pleased to present its third solo exhibition with artist ERIK SCOLLON. and/both presents a new series of larger ceramic objects that suggest attitudes of engagement and embodied aesthetics. There will be an opening reception for the artist on Friday, February 26th, 6-9pm.
Conceptually the works are a continuation of his ideas about queerness and functional ceramics; materially they expand his indulgent love of glaze and color; but formally they mark a departure from his earlier representational forms. In A Moment Lasts Forever Until It’s Gone, Scollon presented a series of objects that were a physical manifestation of himself and his mid-life look at the body, hope, love, beauty, heartbreak and their insistent impermanence.
