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.

Mandala Sand Painting by the Mystical Arts of Tibet

Mandala Sand Painting


Tibetan Buddhist monks from Drepung Loseling Monastery will construct a mandala sand painting and perform special ceremonies August 16-19 at Asia Society Texas Center. This artistic tradition of Tantric Buddhism, painting with colored sand, ranks as one of the most unique and exquisite. Millions of grains of sand are meticulously placed on a flat platform over a period of days or weeks to form the image of a mandala, purifying and healing the environment and its inhabitants. During viewing hours, families can make their own Lung ta ("Wind Horse") prayer flag while learning about the symbolism of the flags and proper techniques for creating and hanging them. 


About Mandala Sand Paintings

Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning sacred cosmogram. These cosmograms can be created in various media, such as watercolor on canvas, wood carvings, and so forth. However, the most spectacular and enduringly popular are those made from colored sand.

In general, all mandalas have outer, inner, and secret meanings. On the outer level they represent the world in its divine form; on the inner level they represent a map by which the ordinary human mind is transformed into enlightened mind; and on the secret level they depict the primordially perfect balance of the subtle energies of the body and the clear-light dimension of the mind. The creation of a sand painting is said to effect purification and healing on these three levels.


When:
Aug 16, 2018 to Aug 19, 2018
Admission is not guaranteed at high-traffic times. A livestream of the mandala creation will run on Asia Society's website, with a new link posted daily.
