Anamorphosis: Exhibition at Lacoste Gallery presents new body of work by Anne Currier
Hryno. 1989. Glazed clay, 11"H x 34"W x 18"D.

CONCORD, MASS.- Lacoste Gallery presents Anne Currier: Anamorphosis, March 12 - April 2, 2016, featuring the ceramic sculptor’s new body of work drawing from Cubist still life paintings and winter hues of Allegany County, New York. Currier focuses on the interplay of dichotomies – such as mass and void, light and shadow, absence and presence. The different angles, planes and curves of her sculptures create an infinite interchange with view, time and space. Through artistic exploration, her organic process of discovery with clay mirrors the evolution in anamorphosis, a term that resides in the natural sciences, denoting the evolution of one organism from another through a series of gradual changes.

Her process for discovery and making has been a layered and organic pursuit. The interior and exterior curves of cylinders and cones in concert with the angles and directions of edges and planes--are elements she finds infinitely connectable and interchangeable in time and space. The artist, previously inspired by the tension and dynamics found in Greek and Buddhist temple pediments, is here intrigued by the structural flatness and synthesis of planar shapes in Cubist still life painting.

Subdued color--slate grays, deep rusts and cool tans, found in the hues of winter in upstate New York are the artist’s palette for sand-like glazed surfaces which direct the focus to other issues and create ambiguities about visual and tactile perceptions.

“It is a pleasure to bring work of this magnitude to Concord and Massachusetts says gallery owner Lucy Lacoste. Anne Currier is a sculptor of the first order. Always evolving, it is interesting to see how the planes and curves of her sculptures relate to still life paintings of Juan Gris. One enlivens the other. ” Lucy Lacoste

Currier, recognized as a significant figure in contemporary ceramic art since the 1980’s, has been represented by major galleries nationally and internationally such as Helen Drutt, Philadelphia and Berlin’s Galerie B 15. She is the Chair of the Division of Ceramic Art at Alfred University. This is her second solo exhibition at Lacoste Gallery; the Gallery has featured her sculpture at innumerable art fairs in New York and Chicago.

Anne Currier received her BFA, 1972, from the School of the Art Institute, Chicago, Illinois with her MFA, 1974, from the University of Washington, Seattle and has been recognized as a major figure in contemporary ceramic art since the 1980’s. In 2012 she was honored with the American Crafts Council College of Fellows career achievement award. She has received several major grants including those from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Virginia Groot Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additionally, Currier is highly regarded as a teacher and is a Kruson Distinguished Professor at Alfred University, twice selected by students and faculty to receive the Joseph Kruson Trust Fund, an award for teaching. Anne Currier is the Chair of the Division of Ceramic Art at Alfred University.
