Mark Chatterley "Perception" Opening at Clarke & Associates

Contact Name:
Linda Clarke & Gus Kopriva
Contact Phone:
281-310-0513

“Perception” will display Chatterley's recent work including ceramic sculptures and two-dimensional mixed media pieces, all with a theme of personal, fantasy, and social commentary.


The exhibit will be on display from September 8 through October 27, 2018.

Opening Reception: September 8 from 6pm to 9pm


Artist Statement:

“Everything is either moving toward or away from nothingness. Life, death, creation and destruction, this is the world I find myself in. I want my art to echo these thoughts. Everything in a state of flux, changing and reforming. A sense of decay along with life. Nothing is permanent and nothing stays the same. I also try to show thoughts and feelings of the human condition. Beauty in the malformed, acceptance of the inevitable. I am doing work of our time for our time, even though I look to the past, the dead, for inspiration.”

About the Artist and his Art:

Artist Mark Chatterley lives and works in Michigan.  He creates two-dimensional work, but is renowned for his three-dimensional, larger than life, ceramic sculptures that often focus on the human condition.  His imagery has a primordial presence, transcending time, and touches on proportions, relationships and survival.  Chatterley’s interest in past cultures, world religions and belief systems is threaded throughout his work.

Averaging use of 18,000 pounds of clay in a given year, Chatterley works using the slab technique to build his sculptures.  In his 700 cubic foot kiln, he bisque fires his creations and then works his crater glazes onto the forms before firing until the pieces are vitrified.  The painstaking process results in surfaces that feature distinctive craters and flowing details.

When asked about where his ideas come from, Chatterley says, “We are all made up of past experiences and beliefs.  That makes each one of us unique, all creating from different places in our lives. Building on past ideas is how we explore and grow.  As an artist, art making can be like that. I put ideas together to see what happens.”

Rachel Gardner "Awakening" Opening at Redbud Gallery

Contact Name:
Gus Kopriva
Contact Phone:
713-862-2532


“Awakening” is a body of work focusing on the wild, overgrown, and enchanted natural world. This series alludes to the idea of the domesticated gone feral. Sharing scenes of new growth and oneness between the creature and land in nature. The imagery becomes a meditation on what creation may be like if left alone by the hand of man to flourish. Through large and small-scale sculptures and mixed media paintings, animals have a strong presence as they roam and become one with moody, inhibited spaces. These haunting, yet whimsical works, are looking to evoke the imagination and “awaken” the human soul. 

The exhibit will be on display from September 8 through September 30, 2018.
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 8 from 6pm to 9pm.
The Berlin Food Factory food truck will be at the reception. Mathias and Silke Bugge will prepare and sell their one of a kind authentic brats and German food.

Owner, Carla Bisong founded Bisong Art Gallery in 2013 inside a 1300sqft loft located in downtown Houston, Texas. She brings her love for marketing and art while providing a platform for artists and art lovers to connect. The gallery is deeply rooted in the community  providing workshops, painting classes, weddings and corporate receptions.

Bisong Art Gallery personally selects artists who use the highest quality of materials in order to ensure their artwork will last for many years to come.

Many first time collectors feel intimidated to purchase their first original artwork. We make the process enjoyable with personalized service and will not complete the sale until you are 100% satisfied.

Art has the ability to inspire, uplift, and enrich a person’s life. Therefore, it is Bisong Art Gallery’s goal to be a platform that connects artists and buyers. We believe everyone should release their inner creativity and everyone should have at least one piece of original art in their home or office.
