Painters Table with Unfinished Painting © 2015 Richard and Martha Shaw, ceramic, 37" x 20" x 15"
April 24—June 5, 2015
Reception: May 8, 5-8pm
In the world of contemporary ceramics, Richard Shaw is the master of trompe l’oeil sculpture. He has developed an astonishing array of techniques, including perfectly cast porcelain objects and overglaze transfer decals. By combining the commonplace with the whimsical, the humorous with the mundane, Shaw captures the poetic and the surreal with the sensibility of a comedian.
Art Works Downtown is honored to exhibit the art of master artist Richard Shaw. This special exhibit features collaborative works with painter Martha Shaw plus new work which has never been publicly exhibited. Thanks to Gallery Paule Anglim and B. Sakata Garo for their support of this exhibit.
