Thank you to everyone that came out last week for the Opening Reception of Eric Finzi’s show “Various Contrivances” and Phil Capuano’s show “Ceramic Perspective.” If you did not get chance to check out the exhibitions or speak with the artists this upcoming artist talk is your next chance! Stop by LWP on Saturday to hear from both artists on their process, inspiration, and experimental mediums.
Join us on Saturday, February 3rd from 3-5pm CST for Artist Talks with both Eric and Phil! Light refreshments will be served.
Linda Warren Projects is pleased to present its 2018 inaugural exhibitions: Eric Finzi, Various Contrivances (Gallery Y) and Philip J. Capuano, Ceramic Perspective (Gallery X & O). For both of these talented and prolific artists, materiality and its unpredictable nature marks a personal passage to an astonishing artistic practice that is both physically and mentally demanding. Whether it be Finzi’s catalytic reaction of resin and hardener or Capuano’s unforeseeable kilns firing, both artists tempt their fate to the alchemical qualities of their medium. It is here, in this place of failures, accidents, and creation, that each artist finds wild magic and a narrative that is truly their own. For Finzi, the resin’s uncontrolled nature and its power to fossilize paint illustrates and resonates with the life of Frida Kahlo, an icon whose own untamed spirit continues to anneal itself to our own collective culture. In the same vein, Capuano’s sculptures seek to amalgamate found objects with his own clay creations, exploring the ceramic process by which the material is manipulated and which often involves multiple attempts at firing, glazing, and assembly. Each sculpture manifests a visual language that references his own artistic evolution and spans over 40 years of craftsmanship.
