Hyggelig

Through subject matter and treatment of material I use portraiture to express my identity. Similar to a keepsake, an objectified person becomes a placeholder for speculative moments in the time line of my life. Gestural moves and construction process marks left along side rendered detail, remind me of how one’s memory is built from pieces – some having more clarity than others.

Banished Heirlooms

Creating refined functional forms that utilize new technology to integrate a wide range of craft disciplines is the first aspect of my studio practice. I then elaborate on the cultural associations and significance of my work and personal heirlooms. Showing how objects relate to people and inform more personal ideas of identity, memory, and personal loss is the final idiom of my work.

Replication

Inside something grows,

moves,

replicates.

A part of the whole

but still its own.

Out of control it grows.

My Fragile World

I visited the Botanical Gardens in Copenhagen within my first week at Guldagergaard, It was a very calm experience amidst the hustle and bustle of the busy streets. Lost in the natural world surrounding me, I felt miles away from the stresses of working as a new graduate. I admired the delicacy of the plants and their strength to survive. With a fascination of our determination to collect, store and protect plant specimens, my own collection portrays my own loss of stress, anxiety and my appreciation for the beauty and charm of the environment around me.

A diptych (pron.: /ˈdɪptɪk/; from the Greek δίπτυχον,[1] di “two” + ptychē “fold”) is any object with two flat plates attached at a hinge.

[plat de menage] Table Decorations used for Serving

My dishes paraphrase old serving-dishes from Royal Copenhagen. They all take place in different landscapes, a reference to the original plat de menages. They function as frames for tiny universes that explore a naive and immediate expression. The themes are about the transition from childhood to adulthood. By mixing various techniques in my work I combine disparate forms, creating tension in the pieces.

Searching for Peter

Drawing from fairy tales and mythological stories that I have enjoyed since childhood, I create unreal or imaginary situations. I combine these stories to inform the development of characters and landscapes. I am also influenced by the landscapes, minerals and animals of British Columbia, Canada. I am creating these alternate and whimsical landscapes to transport the viewer back to a state where any being, place or situation.

Wake Awake Baby

The heart of my current work lies in combining drawings with clay objects.  While the drawings are abstractions of shapes from my everyday environment, working with clay has become about the response to those drawings and then to the qualities/tactility of the material. In the clay, I am looking for the luscious; groping for guttural response.

 

Beyond the process, my practice stems from an endless impulse to make. I make to rejoice in the infinite and unknowable answers, and to practice appreciation of things, people and universe. I make to celebrate.

Volume of Disgust

My vision of reality relates to broken objects, uneven surfaces, apparent dissolution and linearity undermined by failure. In the logic of natural transformation everything changes in an organic way, which leads to a sense of disgust at the excessive proliferation of life in nature.

Only disgust allows access to splendor, to the ineffable beauty of nature.

Ryan Lawless
USA

Working primarily in sculpture and installation, my work explores the prevalence of objects in daily life. I am drawing from our dependence upon material culture and the enigmatic complexities that surround objects to examine an object per se.  Placing objects into altered- yet recognizable – situations affords me the opportunity to distort perception and redefine meaning within the confines of materiality. The result is a paradoxical relationship between humans and objects where conclusions are often precariously drawn and lead to more questions than answers.
