Let Anne Currier tell you about her work: ‘I make ceramic sculptures that are shaped by the interplay of masses and voids. Through the simplicity of clay cylinders, cones, planes and edges, I can indulge my curiosity for inside and outside spaces. Projection and recession, light and shadow, substance and impression are all subject matter.

On some occasions, references to the human body are present. The shapes are the players, intersecting, extending, colliding or passing through/over/under/beyond one another to command space. The rich subtleties and contrasts of winter colors that I see here in Allegany County are sources for glaze colors: charcoal blacks, slate blue/grays, deep rusts and warm tans. Although the fired, glaze surface appears soft, it is hard and feels like sandpaper. This visual/tactile aspect of the surface, combined with light and shadow, triggers visual illusions and spatial ambiguities.’ (Anne Currier)

The first comprehensive publication on the sculptures by this important American artist. Anne Currier’s extraordinary works emphasise space by playing with light, shade, surface and mass with an understanding of human vitality.
