NEW YORK, NY.- In Focus: Eric Serritella is currently on view and the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work at Jason Jacques Gallery since 2013. A renown contemporary ceramist, Serritella specializes in hand-carved trompe l’oeil sculptures that mimic birch and weathered logs and trees with uncanny realism. His work is internationally recognized and has been exhibited, awarded, and collected on five continents for their exquisite design and realistic textures.

“Serritella’s extraordinary creativity in reinterpreting natural forms make him one of the leading clay artists working today,” says Jason Jacques, principal of his eponymous gallery. Serritella’s current work in the exhibition is inspired by his physical response to nature and created in his new studio situated in the forests of North Carolina. Within this focused presentation at the gallery, the artist pushes the boundaries of his medium, with large scale stoneware trees as well as work inspired by traditional ceramic wares.

Says Serritella, “Art is an arena for connection, resonance and reverberation. I create each sculpture as a conduit to emotion through inquiry, recognition and familiarity.”

“With a long and respected artistic career, whose work is admired by both collectors and curators alike, Serritella continues to captivate new audiences with his command of material, form, and technique,” says Jason T. Busch, director of the gallery. “His new work advances his already accomplished portfolio with a remarkable scale and complexity of shape.”

Serritella’s work has been collected by major American museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C., Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, and Mint Museum in Charlotte. He was recognized by the James Renwick Alliance as the 2016 Distinguished Artist in ceramics at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Eric Serritella will provide an in-depth tour of the exhibition and the process of making his work, on February 21st, 6:00-8:00pm. The exhibition is on view through March 10th.
