Kwok Pong “Bobby” Tso‘s recent body of work is a metaphor for him to express the importance of this miscellaneous, compact relationship. Through reconstruction, he processes his work methodically, allowing himself to flow through a predefined process, picking up each part to investigate, look for a new angle, explore the characteristics of different materials and express their qualities of balance, weight, and texture, rather physical or conceptual.

Jamie Bates Slone‘s focus of her work lies in the state of the human condition, the delicacy & fragility of the human construct in an emotional and physical sense. “Through conjured memory, I revisit my family’s history with illness and premature death. My sculptural work is a reflection of those memories with an emphasis on the relationship between human biology and human emotion.”

Akio Takamori “Large House with Many Girls”, 1975

Akio Takamori was a Japanese-American ceramic sculptor and a faculty member at the University of Washington. Cerbera Gallery features works from the artist’s time as a student at the Kansas City Art Institute.

Kimberly LaVonne Luther often considers how much of herself is enmeshed in her work, a body to model, hair to sew and hands to move and imprint the medium.  These objects then symbolize how much of the artist will be left eventually be left behind. She questions where they may go and who will collect them over time.

For the past several years, Keira Norton has been making sculptures depicting human/animal hybrids. She views each piece as part of a narrative drawn from the physical and metaphorical connections between particular types of animals and aspects of the human condition.

In her sculptural clay objects, Kyungmin Park often includes figures in fantastical situations and imaginary worlds. Though the facial expressions of the figures evoke the imagery of childhood, the bodies are adult, suggesting the remnants of the child within the grownup. The coexistence of innocence and experience within one being has an unsettling effect; viewers are made uncomfortable as the whimsical gives way to the darkly bizarre.

 

The formal languages and frequencies that we find in the natural existence of the universe inform and inspire the investigation of Brady McLearen’s studio practice.  He is interested in how humankind has harvested materials and ideas within reach in order to control and make sense of this wild place in which we exist.

Cerbera Gallery’s Sculpture Salon will also be showing various works by artists such as Brandi Withington, Harris Deller, Alice Ballard, Bob Schultz, Jeff Whyman, Rain Harris, Shane Lutzk, Yoonjee Kwak, Joey Watson and Erica Iman among others.
