“My work is an ongoing exploration of the possibility that a tactile physical form might contain an expansive interior, a generous space, a site for the imagination and the thinking of thoughts, both intimate and immense.”
Del Harrow is a ceramic sculptor who explores issues of production and mechanization. His multidisciplinary art practice spans sculpture and design, elegantly integrating work made by hand with digital modeling software and computer-controlled machines. Ceramics critic Glen R. Brown, in Ceramics Art and Perception, said Harrow’s large-scale mixed media art and installations invite “a profound consideration of what it means to be a contemporary sculptor in clay.”
Harrow has been invited to lecture widely on his own work and on the intersection of digital fabrication and craft in contemporary art and education. His work has been exhibited recently at The Milwaukee Art Museum, The Denver Art Museum, The Arizona State University Art Museum, Vox Populi Gallery, The Museum of Fine Art in Boston, Haw Contemporary in Kansas City, MO, and Harvey Meadows gallery in Aspen, CO. He is currently the 2016–17 Viola Frey Distinguished Visiting Professor at California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco. He studied at Curtin University of Technology, Perth, received his BS at the University of Oregon, Eugene, OR, and earned an MFA at NYSCC at Alfred University, NY. He lives and works in Denver, CO.
