Welcome to SOFA CHICAGO 2008!

We are now 15 years from the starting point of SOFA – that small, precocious art fair, held in the basement of a hotel with just over 40 galleries exhibiting. That upstart fair that ambitiously held itself up to the world as a place where the fine and decorative arts and design are bridged. A place where the world could see the finest artworks and the best galleries, and where persons from all walks of life could dive in and find out more about what “it is all about” from artists, museum curators, writers and the, then, small number of passionate collectors. I can remember standing at the entrance to the Fair welcoming those curious individuals and thinking about how diverse an audience we were gathering. Collectors quietly flew into Chicago on private and corporate jets, and children and art students roared up in school buses. Budgetconscious art lovers took city buses and trains and walked to the Sheraton. I remember being so pleased by the wide variety of people checking us out. From young families with children in strollers to stylish women in haute couture and intense-looking artists dressed headto-toe in black. I realized that this was a new populist community in the making, where everyone was and felt welcome. I recall being asked what I would like a visitor to experience on their first visit to SOFA. My response was that I would like them to feel that they are part of this open community, that the people walking the aisles alongside them are like-minded mavericks and friends. That they should leave their varied lives and backgrounds behind and get into the moment, become part of this “now” experience. Ask questions, ask MORE questions, look at the work and the people looking at the works, and if not taking home a piece of art they fell in love with, take home the spirit and moxie of it and its fledgling community.

6

To my utter delight, the SOFA community is no longer fledgling but fully mature, admired for its category-busting artworks and having earned a respectable place in the art world. Even with the finest galleries and dealers representing the finest “bridge” artists in the world, dozens of museum and collector groups attending, national award ceremonies, major corporate sponsors and 35,000 still curious visitors, SOFA remains an open, populist community where everyone is welcome and all are moved and amused and amazed by the extraordinary works on view. Our heartfelt thanks to those persons and organizations too countless to mention, who have contributed time and energy and expertise to this success story and to our dedicated and hard-working SOFA team—friends as well as colleagues. So as you walk these aisles looking at the art and the like-minded people looking at the art, enjoy, and know you are part of something remarkable.

SOFA CHICAGO at 15: A Critic’s View By James Yood

18

Art critics are supposed to be a touch cranky and irritable at our best, when we’ve got a bone to pick with someone or something. Even if we’re happy, it’s supposed to be one of those “Yes, but …” type of situations, and we’re probably most in the groove when we seem slightly annoyed with the object of our attention. It’s called “criticism,” after all, not “praisism,” and on the whole we try to play our evaluative role as best as we can. It gave me pause then, when being invited to write an essay for this fifteenth anniversary of SOFA CHICAGO, to look over some of my earlier commentary on this art fair and find I wrote such trenchant and biting analysis as “I love SOFA CHICAGO” (GLASS, 2005); or “Today there is one true annual gathering of the clan, one place where individuals who are intrigued by these materials physically congregate to share news and information, gossip, and speculation about the future. That place is SOFA CHICAGO” (American Craft, 2008); or when I told listeners to WBEZ-FM Chicago Radio in 2005, “SOFA’s high-end, cutting edge mix clearly has global appeal: it’s a really wonderful art fair.” Wow, that’s hard-hitting criticism, all right—but I can’t help it, I believe that at this moment in history there’s no art fair I visit that seems to work as efficiently and successfully as SOFA CHICAGO, that so regularly delivers the goods—wide ranging and distinguished galleries, the primary collectors of their wares, a major concentration of important artists with enough curators, critics, and aficionados in attendance, and all in a very attractive space in a great city at the perfect time of year. Sounds simple, yes? But it’s not—like Goldilock’s porridge, SOFA CHICAGO is just right, a perfect blend of context and content that allows it to fulfill its primary purpose, which is to create the optimal milieu for gallery owners to present work to their hopefully expanding collector base.

There are moments it’s easy to forget that, when strolling down the aisles of SOFA CHICAGO on a beautiful autumn afternoon, greeting old friends, being introduced to artists you’ve admired for years, discovering some gallery from Sydney or San Francisco you hadn’t heard of, deciding whether or not to catch that panel discussion at 2 pm, it’s easy to think you’re at some collegial convention and not in the midst of a highly refined marketplace where some $20 million is going to change hands over some 72 hours (that’s the figure SOFA CHICAGO releases, I’ve always guessed it’s more than that—a dealer once told me “I spend six months getting ready for SOFA CHICAGO and then six months following up on it when it’s over.”) It’s an almost ideal market, a place where artist, seller, and buyer all seem perfectly content with one another, that perfect dream of capitalism where the marketplace literally creates a community. Mark Lyman and his staff of Expressions of Culture, Inc., has organized this event for the past fifteen years, these last three in partnership with dmg world media, and their core formula still seems to do the trick. SOFA CHICAGO has averaged the participation of around 100 galleries the past few years, roughly double the amount of galleries at SOFA NEW YORK, and a bit more than half of the galleries that attend Art Chicago in the Spring. While these numbers can seem arbitrary, as a consumer, 100 galleries seems, well, just about right; you can amble your way through SOFA CHICAGO over an afternoon and feel you’ve seen them all, even if you breezed by some that didn’t capture your interest. Small art fairs seem incomplete, enormous art fairs feel like the Bataan death march, but around 100 galleries dispersed through the expansive digs of Navy Pier makes you feel you’ve been exposed to a good overview of what’s going on.

The bells and whistles that accompany SOFA CHICAGO also seem measured and choice. There’s room for some ancillary exhibitions that SOFA hosts, a theme or two for some institutions to address, and just enough panel discussions, artist lectures, display areas, demonstration booths, magazine and institutional kiosks and the like to leaven the main event, which is concentrated gallery browsing. It’s an intense but pleasurable sequence of looking and chatting, a fine balance of aesthetics and socializing (I counted last year, I shook hands with 183 people) that just plain works. Chicago looks particularly fetching in the autumn too, and Navy Pier provides a unique and functional setting in a dramatic location.

But a good deal of the special cachet of SOFA CHICAGO is more ephemeral, difficult to analyze precisely. For reasons that are too subtle or transitory to nail down too securely, this is the commercial fair that is currently THE fair, the almost mandatory annual meeting ground of gallerists, artists, collectors, critics, curators, and the public interested in the art and issues it presents. SOFA CHICAGO has served that function for about the last ten years, and shows no sign of not continuing to do so into the future. But what is SOFA CHICAGO? According to its website, it’s “a fair of contemporary decorative arts & design.” In Art + Auction in 2004, I noted “Galleries representing artists who work in glass make up the largest population of SOFA CHICAGO, followed (in order) by ceramics, metalwork and jewelry, wood, fiber, and ethnographic material.” While I’m not sure that order still holds in 2008, I would guess that 100 years from now some future art historian will try to figure out why there were different art fairs for different art materials in the late 20th and early 21st century, why some avenues toward artmaking—painting, say, or photography—end up in one art fair, and sculpture in glass or clay ends up in another, how we make those distinctions, how the art fairs (and museums, galleries, collectors, magazines, etc.) enforce them, and what it says about the different communities that comprise the art world. Some future art historian will do that, but not me. The art world is so enormous, a multi-billion dollar industry employing literally thousands of people, that some reasonable segmentation of it into subsections makes sense to me. I don’t carp when there’s no sports on the Food Channel; if I’m watching the Game Show Network I don’t wonder why I’m not seeing any Shakespeare. Materials that have had long historic and traditional sympathies generally can be congregated together, specialization has taken place in art as well as in almost everything else, and training and tradition has led to organizing some aspects of artmaking by medium. SOFA reflects that and carries it toward the future. Indeed, if I might, part of Mark Lyman’s major legacy may be more than his ongoing organizational and entrepreneurial skills, his ability to plow through the literally thousands of details and decisions necessary to make this fair—and SOFA NEW YORK too—happen, and his ability to so in such a way that it seems effortless. It has been augmented by his recent efforts to articulate the changing face of art produced in materials such as glass, wood, clay and metal. Lyman has called such art “post-craft,” and identified it broadly as “a further embrace of the abstract and sculptural

20

over the functional, marked by increasingly sophisticated intellectual content, and experimentation with new materials.” As someone who struggles regularly with these concepts, I like to call all of this “term-warfare”— I greatly appreciate his efforts here, as we’re still bedeviled by terms such as “craft” and “artisanry” and “functionality” and “decorative arts,” and we sense there’s some hierarchy being played out here. But in many ways, these are starting (thankfully!) to become distinctions with less of a difference, much like the “Is it craft or is it art?” conversations of the 1970s. While tastes can vary, of course, and some of us remain straddled with prejudices for and/or against one artistic medium or another, any individual who walks through SOFA CHICAGO and doesn’t think he or she is observing cultural production of the absolute highest order, competitive visually and intellectually with any art produced in any medium elsewhere, is simply not looking or thinking hard enough. And there – and this is key – is no place on earth that makes that point as well or as succinctly as SOFA CHICAGO. More than any magazine or book, more even than any museum, SOFA’s annual threeday conclave makes the case for its material through the independent efforts of the 100 galleries that comprise it, augmented by interesting in-house programming, and it makes it in such a way as to enthrall its participants and propel its future. SOFA is indispensable.

Author’s note: For the record, I moderated a panel discussion at SOFA CHICAGO some years ago, organized by another entity, and to the best of my knowledge have to date never received compensation from SOFA for anything. While I have briefly interviewed Mark Lyman by phone and e-mail a few times for various publications, I don’t recall having ever met him personally, and have no relationship with him or with SOFA outside of my responsibilities as a critic and journalist. James Yood teaches art history at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and directs the New Arts Journalism program there. He writes regularly for GLASS and American Craft magazines and is Chicago correspondent to Artforum and Art on Paper. Published in celebration of SOFA CHICAGO’s 15th anniversary.

Lucio Bubacco is justly considered to be one of the greatest lampworkers of our time. His many talents include a natural feeling for nude sculpture and consummate craftsmanship in glass. Watching him pulling perfect sculptural form out of a blob of molten glass heated over a flame, as if it were second nature, is magic itself. Although he is a miniaturist, he addresses a larger canvas by starting out with a big idea and working patiently towards its realization in an additive process. Eternal Temptation is his most ambitious work to date and has been a year in the making, taking up virtually his whole time during this period. The work was commissioned by the Litvak Gallery in Tel Aviv, the first in a program of commissions, whereby leading artists in glass are invited to create major works in their own time. The privately owned gallery in Israel combines the passion of a serious collector with the skills of an experienced entrepreneur whose aim is to further the art form. The imagery of Inferno and Paradiso is essentially secular and humanist, but inspired

by a combination of Judeo-Christian thinking, Renaissance sculpture and Greek mythology. This very personal hybrid has resulted in a remarkable scenario, part fairy tale, and part nightmare. It has both the intimacy of a cabinet of curiosities and the drama of the live stage. In a sense what Bubacco has created in this work is a combination of architecture (where beauty and good construction are brought together) and theatre (with its portrayal of human drama). His architecture is constructed by means of a series of extended vessel forms, chalices, goblets, vases and chandeliers; his theatre by means of a cast of many hundreds of small figures who enact the story of Eternal Temptation played out simultaneously in heaven and hell. As well as being a sculptor, Bubacco is a master of ornament, able both to arrange it and fill it with expression. Each detail is carefully flameworked but fashioned with a view to the overall scheme of things. John Ruskin in

C.

his famous treatise on architecture, The Stones of Venice which appeared in the 1850s, devoted a chapter of his work to the treatment of ornament: You cannot have too much of it if it be good‌But you may easily have too much, if you have more than you have sense to manage. For every added order of ornament increases the difficulty of discipline. It is exactly the same as in war; you cannot, as an abstract law, have too many soldiers, but you can easily have more than the country is able to sustain, or than your generalship is competent to command. Bubacco makes none of these mistakes about which Ruskin warns. He always remains in total command, adding detail to detail whilst never losing sight of his ultimate goal.

The central figure in Bubacco’s theatrical interpretation of Eternal Temptation is a single male nude who stands with his arms outstretched in a gondola-shaped vessel. There are two oarsmen, one at each end of the boat, and each is paddling furiously to propel the boat in his direction, one towards an earthly paradise, the other towards hell. The human at the center of this struggle of wills, his stance reminiscent both of Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man and Christ on the Cross, is at their mercy, pulled in both directions, eternally tempted, eternally undecided. To his left is a version of earthly paradise, but only after man’s fall from grace in the Garden of Eden. On the left is the inferno, which in this interpretation appears to be everything that we are denied by restraint and rational reasoning on earth. Inferno looks immensely tempting, but the flames suggest otherwise. The whole scenario is about the human dilemma of making choices and how to cope with temptation. It is of course an autobiographical view, based on the personal imaginings of someone who is an artist and a true Venetian. The fact that Bubacco’s personification of man stands in a gondola-shaped vessel, the colour of the Venetian lagoon, attests to this.

Bubacco was born on Murano and lives there, very much a leading light in that small and concentrated world of glass makers. Despite an international career that takes him around the world, Venice in general and Murano in particular are where his heart is: his art has its roots there. Many things about his Venetian upbringing have remained of seminal importance in his thinking. Architectural ornament in the form of angels and saints as seen on Veneto-renaissance architecture has influenced him greatly. He has lived with it and absorbed it all his life and its imagery remains embedded in his psyche. In addition he has a natural talent for modeling and modeling the human figure in particular, making him able to express emotion via body language. He is inspired by imagery and illustration more than by the written word, and if the framework of Eternal Temptation makes loose reference to Dante’s famous epic poems, it is because Bubacco got to know them through the classically inspired illustrations of Gustave Doré that haunted him as a child. By his own admission, he is as influenced by the human emotion of Michelangelo as the classical beauty of Praxiteles and Greek sculpture.

An American audience has seen much of other Venetian hot glass techniques but the art of Venetian flamework as seen in Eternal Temptation might well be less familiar. It takes an extraordinary talent such as Tagliapietra’s in hot glass or Bubacco’s in flameworked glass to fire the imagination and turn skill into art. Bubacco has done that with his wide-ranging realization of the possibilities of flameworking as an art form. He has also led a team of extraordinary Venetian craftsmen in realizing a work that combines many different disciplines to compliment his own. Eternal Temptation incorporates the skills of some of the finest Maestri or master glass blowers in Venice with the traditional vernacular of enamel painting, executed by the amazing skills of one of the finest flameworkers in the world. Lucio Bubacco has been the instigator, chief protagonist and author of this highly unusual masterpiece whose magic will appeal as much to children as to an adult audience. Its frankness is touching, its humour and charm highly infectious. It is a spectacular stage in miniature. Dan Klein is an art historian and curator.

Judy Onofrio: Context for Content By Patricia McDonnell

Subtle. This is not an adjective often associated with the work of Judy Onofrio. Baroque and boisterous are terms one typically encounters in the Onofrio lexicon—but the audacious boldness and labor-intensive craft of her work can veil its rich metaphors and subtle meaning. I met Onofrio in 1994 when she gave an illustrated presentation about her work, before I ever encountered one of her sculptures. In her talk, Onofrio emphasized her passionate love of materials and objects, and she also displayed a keen awareness of her art-historical lineage. Artists from Della Robbia to Sam Rodia were cited as predecessors and she spoke knowledgeably of contemporaries Viola Frey, Robert Arneson and others. By then, Onofrio had evolved beyond her beginnings in the ceramic world, a heritage confirmed by these references. Anyone would have left the lecture hall impressed by Onofrio’s selfreflective range of inspirational sources—a deft combination of historical devotional art, visionary art, Avant garde, and California funk. Her sources, I should note, are more expansive than can be tidily knit into a one-hour talk. No one in the

audience that day could fail to observe Onofrio’s gleeful addiction to flea markets, garage sales, salvage haunts, and junk stores. The more kitsch and over-the-top, the better. Missing from what she shared about her work, which I later mentioned to her, was the complicated narrative of her content. This was covertly hinted at, but not fully addressed. A child of the 1940s, Onofrio grew up at a time when women achieved important new social liberties. While her coming-of-age in the 1960s exactly coincided with the flourishing Women’s Movement and zestful feminist artmaking of the 1970s, Onofrio’s personal self-confidence developed against a backdrop of highly successful men—her father, a Vice Admiral in the Navy, and her husband, a Mayo Clinic neurosurgeon. These models raised the bar for achievement in the family; paradoxically, they did not create an assumption that Onofrio, as a woman, must go on to do the same. But they did prod her, one imagines. And the roles newly opening to women and the surge of women’s artmaking framed a context for Onofrio’s development and artistic commentary.

Onofrio is a person of profound intelligence who has pushed for achievement and meaningful selfexpression, despite societal barriers of her generation and multiple personal hurdles. Her art reflects such circumstances—it celebrates strong women, defiant actions, underdogs, odd ducklings, even misfits who exude a proud braggadocio. It also, wisely, imparts a resonant humanity acknowledging human vulnerability and foibles—the fine balance of personal relationships, precariousness of good health, whimsy of good fortune, inevitable human blunders and faux pas. The titles of work such as Delicate Balance, Game of Chance, Loaded Dice, Ring of Fire, or Anything You Want hint at the subtext of desire, transgression, and playing against the odds. They impart the message that we should accept the risks and stride positively toward and against any hurdles society may throw our way. They also allude to the clichés and conventions that Onofrio embraces and probes in her art.

27

It fascinates me that Onofrio began her confrontation of the roles and role-play of powerful women as artists like Cindy Sherman, Eleanor Antin, and Barbara Kruger, also questioned the tropes of the feminine in their art. In related ways, Onofrio’s and the oeuvres of these artists embrace feminism yet explore complicated cultural and psychological territory well beyond it. Mrs. Butterworth, Aunt Jemima, Mae West, assorted burlesque queens, fortunetellers, enchantress mermaids, and female acrobats—such is the lineup of bold babes who hold a special place in Onofrio’s art world. Like the clichéd B-movie heroines of Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills series, Onofrio presents ordinary feminine prototypes lifted from the orbit of everyday life. These stock characters seduce the viewer through their pleasing familiarity as much as Onofrio’s expert showmanship. Nonetheless, the repetition of types and the persistent precariousness of their activities suggest that Madame Twisto and The Amazing Miss Laverne are gusty performers, yet their flawless execution is not always a given. They defiantly strut their stuff boldly navigating beyond the safe social world that kept June Cleaver at home and in the kitchen. Both their confidence and vulnerability are on display.

Onofrio creates a world in which her characters defy cultural boundaries and transgress social norms. The vehicle for this expression, it is important to note, aligns Onofrio with other strong women artists with a penchant for meticulous craft. The installations and sculptural tableaux of Ree Morton, Viola Frey, Liza Lou, Chakaia Booker, and Tara Donovan are part of her complex lineage, marked by meticulous perfectionism and an amazing laborintensiveness. This painstaking attention to detail and creative reuse of materials are keys to Onofrio’s work’s powerful visual impact. The precision of her sculptures’ markings add another layer of meaning to their content, anchoring them in the rich history of 20th-century feminist artmaking. The pointed labor of Ann Hamilton’s or Michelle Grabner’s artistic practices, among other examples, establish plural metaphorical meanings surrounding women’s toil– part menial grind, part loving effort. The tremendous exertion involved in creating such complex extravagances aligns Onofrio with this tradition. The razzmatazz of Onofrio’s vivid artistry of surface opulence initially seduces the eye and the senses. Don’t be fooled. Her art, beyond first impressions, carries a depth and an incisive commentary on American life and culture. An individual work is a wonder to behold. A distinctive sculpture or installation grasped more fully within and against the career of artist Judy Onofrio, well, there one finds subtlety. © Patricia McDonnell, director, Ullrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University.

In 2003, Andy & Charles Bronfman and Dale & Doug Anderson, along with friends and colleagues, created the Association of Israel’s Decorative Arts (AIDA). AIDA’s mission is to foster the development of contemporary decorative artists from Israel by connecting them to an international audience of galleries, institutions, and collectors. The earliest pieces of blown glass are thought to date back to about 50 B.C. and have primarily been discovered in what is today modern Israel. Given this fact, it is striking that until recently, the land that gave birth to glassblowing has had little activity in glass art since those early days. Not until the mid-1970s did the studio glass movement reach Israel when Marvin Lipofsky travelled to Israel and spent time at Israel’s preeminent art school, the Bezalel Academy of Art in Jerusalem. While there, he built a glass furnace for the Ceramics Department. The first courses in glass were taught in the late-1970s and a formal department with a full curriculum was established in 1997. Believe it or not, the furnace built by Lipofsky over 30 years ago is the same furnace in use today. Until 2006, Bezalel housed the only large glassblowing facility

in Israel, making it challenging for graduating students as they had nowhere to continue their craft upon graduation. To date, Bezalel remains the only university where students can study glass making in Israel. Two museums, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and the Eretz Israel Museum near Tel Aviv, have displayed contemporary glass in their galleries since the 1970s, but until the mid-1990s, private dealers and collectors remained largely disinterested in glass as a contemporary art form. The major attitude shift came in 1997 with Dale Chihuly’s exhibit at the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem. The exhibit was an eye-opening experience for Israel’s artists and the country as a whole, demonstrating the potential of glass as an art form. Time and again, AIDA hears from artists that this exhibit was a defining moment for them to become engaged in glass. Indeed, over the past ten years, there has been a dramatic rise in the number of Israeli artists working in glass as well as increasing interest in the media amongst dealers and collectors. That said, there is still much catching up that needs to be done to achieve international standards and surmount Israel’s modest resources.

A number of recent developments within the Israeli glass movement have caused AIDA to invest more time, energy and resources into this community. In 2007, two local artists working in glass opened their own private hot shop in Tel Aviv, the first studio of its kind in Israel, called G Studio (formerly Trio Vetro Studio). A number of new initiatives coincided, including a major museum exhibition and gallery, both providing opportunities to Israel’s emerging artists working in glass. Henrietta Bruner, the glass curator at the Eretz Israel Museum in Tel Aviv, curated Fragile Reality: Israeli Artists Creating in Glass which opened in the winter of 2007 and was the first show of its kind showcasing glass by contemporary Israeli artists (AIDA provided support for the printing of the exhibit’s catalogue). In addition, Miriam Yaniv opened the Yaniv Glass Gallery in Tel Aviv, showing and selling their work. Both the exhibition and gallery have provided significant new opportunities for Israeli artists. As AIDA’s mission is to foster the development of contemporary decorative artists from Israel, and since glass is emerging as a viable art form, the organization has established several programs to support Israel’s studio glass artists.

31

Since 2003, AIDA has sponsored fellowships for Israeli artists at Pilchuck Glass School and the Corning Museum of Glass. These programs provide artists with advanced training, an opportunity to network with international colleagues and learn about the local art market. The high-demand for fellowships has demonstrated that further glass initiatives in Israel are required in order for Israeli artists to continue to progress. As a result, AIDA launched a pilot project with G Studio where the organization rented studio time at the glassblowing facility for five promising artists. It has become increasingly apparent that education and learning is key to advancing the Israeli glass movement. In May 2007, AIDA sponsored its first glass workshop in Israel. Seattle-based artists and members of Lino Tagliapietra’s team, John Kiley and Jennifer Elek, were funded to travel to Israel to conduct workshops and demonstrations at Bezalel Academy and G Studio. The workshops offered students and instructors a learning opportunity; as John mentioned at the conclusion of the workshop, “It is a very exciting time for the glass movement in Israel. The artists we are working with are really the pioneers of a new generation of artists.” In February 2008, AIDA provided support for Bill Gudenrath, Resident Advisor of the Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass, to present a workshop at G Studio. Following these successful workshops, in June 2008, AIDA supported a two-day flameworking workshop at the Bezalel Academy led by Minnesota-based artist Chris McElroy. As the glass movement in Israel awakens and artists seek high-level training, AIDA continues to encourage and support emerging glass programs. AIDA aspires to influence the future of glass art in Israel, spreading the word of its artists’ considerable talents into global markets.

The International Film Festival on Clay and Glass Presented at SOFA CHICAGO by Ateliers d’Art de France By Serge Nicole and François Belliard

34

Founded in 1868 by a group of craftsworkers, Ateliers d’Art de France is the French federation for craft professionals. Representing a wide range of know-how and a diversity of materials: ceramics, glass, metal, textiles, fabric and wood, the Ateliers d’Art currently includes more than 1,300 artists, craftsworkers and craft workshops throughout France. Its purpose is to support professionals by offering advice and training and to promote the craft professions through events, exhibitions and fairs in France and abroad, as well as through its boutiques and gallery, which is located across from the Picasso Museum in Paris. The Gallery Collection is a showcase for unique contemporary works and it regularly participates in well known fairs dedicated to the applied arts and design, such as SOFA in Chicago and New York.

Image and films offer a perspective that the eye sometimes cannot glimpse – panning around a piece of work, superimposing the inside and the outside, caressing the surface of the clay like a paintbrush, or making the sparkling light of glass vibrate. “Whether slow or quick, moving or still, the camera captures the multiple facets of a glance and the anxieties of the creative mouth and lips of so many artists and craftsworkers that we dare not glimpse alone. Poetically modest, sometimes audacious and violent, animated images can sometimes help us to grasp the unfathomable dimensions of creation”, wrote Loul Combres, Artistic Director, in the editorial for the Festival's 10th anniversary. Attended by 350 festival-goers in 1998, the Festival has attracted more and more visitors every year since. More than 1,300 spectators flocked to the 2008 edition. The Festival’s international dimension has also gained a solid footing over time, as over 12% of the festival-goers came from abroad for the last edition.

In line with its cultural policy, Ateliers d’Art de France organises the International Film Festival on Clay and Glass every two years in Montpellier, France. Created in 1998 to showcase the firebased arts, promote international cultural exchanges and develop the creation and dissemination of films, the Festival was originally dedicated entirely to clay. Glass was added to the programme in 2006.

The films screened are the fruit of a fascinating quest among audiovisual and cultural entities both in France and abroad. A viewing committee comprised of professionals from the audiovisual, art and craft worlds meets before the Festival to select the films that will be screened according to their cinematographic quality and content. The committee views nearly 140 films, of which some 30 films are finally selected for the “com-

Each edition of the festival has a varied programme and is open to documentaries, fictional films, cartoons and experimental productions. The richness of clay and glass offers a broad spectrum of subjects and undoubtedly contributes to the public’s fascination with this unique event. Heritage, architecture, artistic research, history of civilisations, ethnology and archaeology are all covered. Each Festival is an invitation to travel across the five continents, to meet contemporary artists and creators, to discover ancient civilisations and age-old traditions.

In 2002, Mark Lyman, Founder and Director of SOFA honoured us by serving on the Festival jury. Today, it is the turn of Ateliers d’Art de France to accept his invitation by presenting a selection of films reflecting the diversity of the Festival programme at SOFA CHICAGO. We are delighted to offer SOFA visitors this “best of” collection and hope you will be surprised by its range and depth and enjoy it!

Films presented at SOFA CHICAGO 2008 Claire Curneen Alex McErlain, Great Britain, 2005 This documentary was filmed on the occasion of the exhibition devoted to ceramic artist Claire Curneen at the Manchester Art Gallery in 2005. She is filmed in her studio, where she creates a figurative porcelain piece. She also talks about the development of her creative ideas. Dante Marioni Patricia O’Brien, USA, 2007 The son of Paul Marioni, a prominent glass artist, Dante Marioni grew up surrounded by glass artists. In this portrait, he pays tribute to his mentors, especially Lino Tagliapietra who he describes as being the Elvis of the glass world. Dante Marioni is completely engaged in the art of glassblowing bringing to his work the skill of a fine craftsman and an elegant sense of design. Dreaming of Spirit Animals Sally Cloninger, USA, 2004 This film chronicles the work of the American artist Cappy Thompson and her process of creating a large-scale public art piece (the “largest painted glass window in existence”) for the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The documentary explores Thompson’s unique relationship to the function of narrative and auto-biography in glass art as well as her interest in dreams and mythology and her methods of incorporating diverse inspirations for her glass work. Hand Made Jamshid Bahmani, Iran, 2004 This documentary was filmed in a glassblowing workshop near Tehran, Iran. It shows the difficult working conditions of the craftsworkers, as well as the elegant pieces they create. Marvin Lipofsky: A Journey in Glass Paul McKenna, USA, 2003 This film is a journey through the many phases of Marvin Lipofsky’s career, starting with his early groundbreaking work in California to his more recent work produced in glass factories around the globe. Lipofsky’s technique of creating pieces that reflect the culture and setting of these varied locales has become his signature.

Nick Mount’s Fascination With Glass Tony Cox, Australia, 2001 This documentary is a profile of the Australian glass artist, Nick Mount, who helped found the hot glass movement in Australia 25 years ago and is now renowned internationally in glass circles. We see him as a mature craftsman at work in his home town of Adelaide, Australia, and in the United States with other renowned glass artists, including his long-time mentor Richard Marquis. Ousmane Sow Béatrice Soulé, France, 1996 The film is a love story between a man and his sculpture, between a man and a woman, and between a man and a branch of humanity. Patti Warashina: Inside the Studio of a Ceramic Sculptor Ann Hedreen and Rustin Thompson, USA, 1991 This film offers a foray into the creative universe of prolific artist Patti Warashina. She is filmed working in her studio in Seattle and discussing her past, her career and her sources of inspiration. Pottery and Dragon Kiln Jiansheng Li, China, 2007 In China, Tao Yao village pottery making can be traced back to the Tang Dynasty. Hand made large pots, firing in a long dragon kiln has been one of the most unique traditions in this area for over 1,000 years. Today, this group of potters is the last generation left and they are still working and living with old traditions.

The Eye: Grayson Perry John F. Wyver, Great Britain, 2007 After winning the Turner Prize in 2003, Grayson Perry has become the nation’s favourite transvestite potter. In this film, he speaks engagingly about why he is an artist who uses ceramics and not a potter, and about the defining and often dark, disturbing themes that run through his work. The Goddess With Feet of Clay Frédéric Soltan and Dominique Rabotteau, France, 1998 In the autumn, the Indian metropolis of Calcutta celebrates the mother goddess Durga. 300 sculptor families live within the city. On the occasion of this festival, they make thousands of clay effigies of the goddess. Towards mid-October, they leave their workshops and join the procession of altars held aloft in their honour on both sides of the city to receive the tributes of the faithful for four days and four nights. The Wow ! Element Mattias Piltz, Sweden, 2005 In the summer of 2005, the Global Art Glass exhibition was held for the third time at the castle of Borgholm, Sweden. This glass art exhibition has become an increasingly important meeting place for an international group of artists who focus more on glass art rather than art glass. The film presents 16 glass artists from 15 countries that participated in the exhibition.

Richard Deacon Frédéric Le Clair, France, 2006 Richard Deacon is recognised as one of today’s leading “classical” sculptors. His monumental pieces reveal a subtle examination of the relations between the language and meaning that must be embodied by a sculpture, which is not “just a thing.” We discover a compassionate, generous artist who describes himself as a story-teller. River of Words Helen Miller, Great Britain, 2003 Rupert Spira is one of Britain’s finest studio potters. The film takes its title from one of his tall bowls inscribed with a long, meditative poem. Made over a period of six months at the artist’s home in Shropshire, River of Words is a contemplative film, giving a glimpse into Spira’s daily working practice.

Collecting Collectors/Constructing a Collection: RAM at Five Years By Bruce W. Pepich

A.

38

In our culture almost every artist needs some form of encouragement to continue generating new work. Once an artwork moves from the somewhat solitary environment of the studio and enters the public domain, it requires a support system of collectors, galleries, writers, funders and museums that exists to aid artists and the formation of their new work. Whether the assistance is emotional (reviews and critical acclaim) or financial (exhibition opportunities, sales, grants and fellowships), it is essential for the further development of an artist’s career. Few artists can function in a vacuum, and artwork must have opportunities to communicate with viewers. The Racine Art Museum (RAM) was created in 2003 to house one of the most significant contemporary craft collections in the country. This new museum was born in a community of 80,000 people with a shifting economic base, transitioning from a manufacturing center into a weekend destination for Chicagoans, a cultural tourism site for the region, and a home to artists relocating into abandoned factory buildings. Although this collection was previously assembled at the 60-year-old Charles A. Wustum Museum of Fine Arts, RAM represented a substantial departure and a glorious adventure into a new century. The community placed great effort in funding RAM programming and facilities, however this transformation of a museum and a community has taken place in an economic climate that, because of the factory closings and high unemployment of the last two decades, has precluded raising funds for acquisitions. RAM’s leadership believed that collecting was an essential function that formed a bridge to the future and aided artists working today through career documentation. RAM came into being by focusing on one important sector of the artists’ support system – collectors. For more than 25 years, we have endeavored to collect collectors, as well as their artwork gifts. Collectors occupy an incredibly important place in the art world ecosystem. They are often the first to purchase new work from an emerging talent and new series by established figures. This provides financial aid, but even more importantly, serious encouragement that sends a motivated artist back into the studio. Through their purchases, collectors also assist galleries which, in turn, provide exhibition opportunities that broaden the audience through further exposure. By sharing information about artists with other enthusiasts and opening their homes to interested groups, collectors advocate on behalf of the artist, creating a larger pool of new collectors. They bring new talent to the attention of museum curatorial staff and provide financial con-

tributions for exhibition and collection programs. Collectors also donate and purchase artwork with the generous goal of gifting their acquisitions to their favored museum. As many institutions are persistently strapped for funds, the gift of acquisitions allows museums to direct funding to public education programming and audience-building efforts. Once a piece enters the realm of the museum, it becomes public property. The museum makes a commitment to exhibit and care for it and through a host of related programs, most museums conduct ongoing public education about the works they own. Because of the institution’s efforts to constantly broaden their audience, these educational programs introduce visitors to new and unique art forms and bring art to audiences that might never visit a gallery or studio. Museum exhibitions help inspire young people to enter the art field and encourage new collectors, creating the next generation for this cultural ecosystem. Collectors are essential to assisting artists and the production of their works, but they can also make an incredible difference to a museum. When different collectors with a variety of viewpoints and tastes donate to one museum, they amplify the point of view the museum can achieve with one curator and the acquisition dollars it could assemble as one institution. This expands the reach of the collection and the scope of the exhibitions, making the museum’s collection more comprehensive and its exhibitions more broadly based.

RAM’s collection currently has two foci: craft media and works on paper. Graphics and photographs were its main interest until the second focus in crafts was added in 1989. RAM acquires in-depth – representing artists in early, middle and late life to demonstrate the progress of their aesthetic ideas over time. The museum collaborates with living artists in ways that encourage the production of new pieces and through these efforts, RAM has much in common with the spirits and interests of its donors. Artists are repeatedly presented in changing thematic exhibitions from RAM’s collection, which place them in different contexts to encourage the viewing audience to form new interpretations of these works. RAM believes strongly in documentation and publishes gallery guides and catalogues recording the aesthetic growth of these artists.

When seeking ways to sustain these efforts, RAM has sought ideal people to partner with—divine donors. These collectors are generous in action and spirit, contributing objects and funds to underwrite collections’ care and programs. A genuine love of art and respect for artists’ roles in society are indispensable, as well as a true desire to share their excitement in encountering a great work of art with the public. They share their ideas and enthusiasm without exerting undue control or influence and understand the delicate balance they must maintain with the museum in advising on activities, without demanding a specific action. Model donors are thoroughly in agreement with the concept of exhibiting the objects they amass alongside those of other collectors to create new points of view that might not be possible if the piece remained privately held. Divine donors are thoroughly enthusiastic about the manner in which the institution will use the artwork they entrust to it and welcome the opportunity for the museum to present these works on behalf of their creators.

RAM has been exceedingly fortunate to have a large number of divine donors who have made gifts of artwork both prior and subsequent to its 2003 opening. At present, there are donors living in 30 states who have presented gifts to RAM’s collection. Five of these collectors—three individuals and two couples—stand out in this group and are honored in an exhibition highlighting their gifts to RAM at SOFA CHICAGO 2008. While we are grateful to each donor who has helped assemble RAM’s collection, we believe it is important to front and center five heaven-sent donors, who have served as cornerstones in building RAM’s collection through large numbers of gifts of great quality. Moreover, through their enthusiasm, volunteer efforts and financial assistance, these perfect patrons have built on their gifted objects by supporting programming based on RAM’s permanent collection in ways that have amplified the effects of their original gifts. They have created a life for this museum and an exciting environment in which works from many sectors of the museum’s two foci intersect, creating opportunities wherein new interpretations evolve and both the general public and the seasoned viewer may learn new perspectives.

The original collection at Wustum Museum always benefitted from gifts beginning with the arrival of a substantial grouping of WPA Art presented by the Federal Government in 1943, which was quietly augmented by gifted works on paper until the early 1970s. At this time, a Racine native, noted collector and arts advocate, Karen Johnson Boyd, began presenting the museum with gifts of paper pieces and ceramics. When the museum announced its second focus in crafts, she helped build the collection at a major pace. In 1991, Ms. Boyd presented the museum with a 200-piece gift that immediately created nationally significant representations of contemporary ceramics, jewelry and basketry. This gift included major figures from two generations in the contemporary ceramics field from the mid-1970s through the late-1980s, such as Rudy Autio, Wayne Higby, Toshiko Takaezu and Robert Turner. The fibers gift included Lia Cook, Dominic Di Mare, Norma Minkowitz and Ed Rossbach. Her metals contribution represented Robert Ebendorf, Arline Fisch, Eleanor Moty and Earl Pardon. The national attention her gift brought to the museum attracted many of the donors who have helped RAM earn its reputation as a leader in the field. Ms. Boyd has continued to present RAM with gifts of multiple objects each year since 1991. Her efforts to build the ceramics collection have attracted a number of other major gifts, as have her continued efforts to expand RAM’s representation of contemporary fibers. Her gifts have contributed multiple examples of artists from throughout their careers to establish a serious documentation of the crafts field.

In recent years RAM has increased efforts to acquire graphics and photographs by important artists in order to create equivalent pairings with crafts masterworks in its exhibitions. Ms. Boyd has been very supportive of these efforts, presenting RAM with nearly 100 examples of prints and drawings by major figures in the painting field in the past three years. She has also donated over 50 photographs by respected artists in addition to ceramic and fibers media. Her most recent gift contained artists as varied as Olga de Amaral, Robert Arneson, Dale Chihuly, Diane Itter, Akio Takamori and Peter Voulkos in craft media; and Bill Brandt, Francesco Clemente, Lee Friedlander, Arnold Newman, Robert Rauschenberg and Esteban Vicente in graphics and photographs. In 1989, New York collectors Dale and Doug Anderson were attracted to the museum’s newly stated crafts focus, and visited on a group tour. They began donating objects to the museum that same year. They have continued their efforts each year since, donating literally hundreds of artworks for the collection and pieces traded or sold to raise funds for acquisitions. Their initial gifts were pieces by Jack Earl and Judy Jensen, and each year this couple has continued to build RAM’s representation of the glass field with gifts of works by Carol Cohen, Michael Glancy, Jay Musler and Ginny Ruffner. At the same time, their far-ranging eye and broad tastes also resulted in their contributing ceramics, fibers and metals in support of RAM’s mission.

Many pieces the Andersons have presented to RAM are by young talents or are examples of more well-known figures at emerging stages in their careers. Some of these examples are now historic and facilitate the recording of the early development of artists who are acclaimed today. By representing different stages in their lives, RAM can demonstrate how these figures became established and matured. The Andersons’ enthusiasm for young talent and new statements by recognized individuals has provided many artists with the kind of animated recognition that encourages the creation of new work. Their recent gifts demonstrate this strategy and include examples by Hank Murta Adams, Lola Brooks, Nora Fok, Dante Marioni, Mark Newport, Kiff Slemmons and Carol Westfall. With their gifts, the Andersons enable RAM to present recent works by a wide range of artists and to introduce new talents. Since RAM strives to encourage living artists, the acquisition of emerging individuals and new statements by recognized figures is a great assist toward achieving this goal. The Andersons have been active, vocal and positive advocates for RAM since the early 1990s. They have served on committees and the museum’s Board of Directors, while constantly putting the museum’s staff in touch with artists, activists and colleagues in the field. They have been devoted ambassadors on behalf of the museum and its mission, extending the reach of the staff across the country, bringing other enthusiasts and additional gifts to RAM. If RAM is indeed collecting collectors, the Andersons are often in the front line of the acquisition team. St. Louis collector, Donna Moog, presented her first gift to the museum in 1996, a Leon Niehues basket following her inaugural visit. In 2000, she presented a gift of 286 contemporary ceramic teapots, instantly establishing one of the largest collections of this kind in the United States. This gift included major figures in ceramic sculpture who occasionally made teapots, artists known for solely creating teapots and studio potters. The Moog gift has created a snapshot of the teapot form and its interpretation as practiced by a wide range of American and European ceramic artists from the 1980s and 1990s, and includes Annette Corcoran, Ken Ferguson, John Glick, Karen Karnes, Jeff Oestreich and Beatrice Wood.

Ms. Moog’s gift, which debuted in 2003, added teapots by sculptors already at RAM, augmented the holdings of makers of teapots already in the collection, and substantially added to RAM’s representation of studio potters. To this original contribution, she has recently added over 50 additional pieces in ceramics and basketry. This builds on the gift of her teapots by adding sculptures by major figures in the ceramics field including Richard DeVore, Ruth Duckworth and Richard Shaw. Her gift of baskets significantly expands RAM’s collection of this material by adding both first-time artists and multiple examples by major figures RAM wishes to represent in depth. Her gift includes works by Linda Bills, Lissa Hunter, Gyöngy Laky, and Sylvia Seventy among others. RAM’s strength in contemporary basketry attracted Los Angeles-based collector, Lloyd Cotsen,who recently donated his contemporary American basket collection to the museum. This gift, which is currently having its debut exhibition in Racine, contains 151 works created by 74 artists. Mr. Cotsen was impressed by RAM’s serious interest in baskets and by its ongoing inclusion of this material in its exhibitions. The vast majority of these baskets were created by American women artists during the past 20 years and represent what Mr. Cotsen thinks is an example of American artists taking the lead in the fibers field on an inter-national level. He strongly believes these artists expanded the public’s view of baskets as a medium for serious expression. He sees these pieces as evidence of the artists’ groundbreaking experimentation to investigate ways in which basketry techniques could be explored as vehicles for creating threedimensional sculptural forms.

His gift, the single largest gift of contemporary baskets to arrive at RAM, joins nearly 300 contemporary baskets in RAM’s collection from other donors, creating one of the largest concentrations of this material in any art museum in the United States. The Cotsen Collection is broad and includes single examples by 46 artists. At the same time, it is also in-depth as it includes multiple examples by 28 artists including Dorothy Gill Barnes, Lillian Elliott and John McQueen, creating a broad documentation of this field during the last two decades of the 20th century. David Charak and his late wife Jacqueline, have been donating objects to RAM for over five years after being introduced to RAM by the dealer Leslie Ferrin. Living in St. Louis, the Charaks have assembled a respected contemporary ceramics collection. Their main gifts to RAM have primarily focused on ceramics and they have increased RAM’s growing holdings in teapots with the addition of multiple examples by recognized masters like Richard Notkin, George Ohr and Peter Shire, as well as younger talents entering RAM’s collection for the first time. The Charaks have also presented pieces of ceramic sculpture by Jack Earl and Paul Dresang, fibers by Mary Giles, glass by Richard Marquis and metal hollowware teapots by Marilyn Da Silva, Kevin O’Dwyer and Christina Y. Smith, broadening RAM’s existing representations of these media.

Like other collectors highlighted in this group, David Charak sometimes calls to discuss a potential purchase he is contemplating, with the expectation that it will eventually come to RAM. It is exciting to watch a collector select something based on how it fills his/her collection. It is even more exhilarating when the museum’s needs are also considered. Another delight for a curator is when donors’ interests overlap and works arrive that were created by the same artists, but at different times in their careers. RAM has received examples by Anne Kraus from Ms. Boyd, the Charaks and Ms. Moog; ceramics by Ralph Bacerra from the Andersons, Ms. Boyd, the Charaks and Ms. Moog; glass by Richard Marquis from the Andersons, Ms. Boyd and the Charaks; and baskets by Lillian Elliott and John McQueen from Ms. Boyd, Mr. Cotsen and Ms. Moog. Each of these single contributions amplifies the other gifts to more clearly survey the artists’ complete bodies of work. There are many other influential donors who actively support RAM by making contributions of objects and we are grateful to them all. We hope to include some of them in a future exhibition of this type. Collecting collectors is about gathering talented and generous souls to your museum, but it is also about ongoing sharing relationships between the donors and the institution. Just as no artist works alone in a vacuum, so too, collectors and museums must establish a collaborative environment that builds on their mutual strengths to advance the field. They also must reach out to the broader public to establish and involve the next generation of creators and appreciators.

It is appropriate to use the forum of SOFA CHICAGO’s to focus on RAM’s collection and to acknowledge these collector/donors. Many of the objects at RAM were purchased from galleries and artists who have exhibited at SOFA expositions. These artists have been presented to the public and selected by collectors because of the exposure the artists received in the forum of the exhibitions and educational programs at SOFA. By displaying and documenting these artists, RAM continues the efforts of SOFA’s organizers and exhibitors to expose a growing segment of the public to contemporary crafts and build an appreciative audience for the artists who create these works.

A Perfect Marriage: Wood and Color By Paul W. Richelson

A.

44

B.

Color is an inherent property of wood and has always played a part in its visual appeal for both artist and public alike, whether it is a sculptural object or functional furniture. The special exhibit, A Perfect Marriage: Wood and Color, presents artists who have inventively used the “natural” color of wood, as well as surveys those who have married artistic color and wood to explore new aesthetic possibilities. The 2001 broadly historical touring exhibition Wood Turning in North America Since 1930, organized by the Yale University Art Gallery and the Wood Turning Center, reconstructed the tradition of 20th century wood art through three generations, making clear how influential modernism and its attitude towards materials were for wood art at its inception: natural materials, simple methods of construction, honesty in process and structure, as well as simplicity of form. Although the pioneers of wood art may not have discussed it as such, as artist/designers, they were undoubtedly aware of earlier modernist developments well established by the 1920s. When 20th century modernist sculptors such as Constantin Brancusi selected wood as a suitable material for both sculpture and base, an important precedent was established. Directly carved by the artist, the finished sculpture showed a respect for the texture, grain and color of the wood, as well as natural forking and patterning. Brancusi’s bases strongly maintained the heaviness and bulk of the material, as well as honestly revealed a record of the artist’s carving hand. Brancusi’s early training at the Craiova School of Crafts

D.

C.

involved extensive woodworking which left him well-prepared to carve the block himself. Eventually he actually exhibited the bases by themselves. As sculptor William Tucker observed in 1974, “Brancusi saw in carving the means to the definitive and unique form for each sculpture. …[He] realized carving as…private, individual, separate, concentrated and quiet.” It should be noted that all of these qualities are precisely what has made contemporary wood art so popular. Closer to home, this aesthetic was communicated equally well by the American sculptor Isamu Noguchi, who studied with Brancusi in Paris in 1927 and established his career in the early 1930s. Other artists of note reviving direct carving were Chaim Gross and Seymour Lipton, who both exhibited wood sculpture in the 1930s. The modernist’s “truth in the material” point of view placed a high value on minimum intervention to emphasize the pure and hence, spiritually honest appreciation of wood’s raw color, while allowing for some technical interventions to help reveal its true color. Without necessarily being consciously aware of the influence of modernist aesthetics, contemporary viewers and collectors nevertheless are predisposed to critically approach wood art with this stylistic bias. This has made it very difficult for artists with what might be described as an eclectically permissive or postmodernist approach to be widely appreciated. The artists invited to participate in this special exhibit share an appreciation for the importance of color, and its progressive expansion of the

definition of what is valid in contemporary wood art. For them color and wood combine in a perfect expressive union that invites exploration. One might say that they conceptualize their work coloristically. Even when basically utilizing the natural color of the wood, there is a heightened sensitivity to its properties and potential. What is also clear about these artists is that design is an important component in the process. One of the most effective design components used to exploit the potential of color is pattern. Michael Mode’s Conjunction Ascending is a particularly effective use of three woods (holly, wenge and yellowheart) to create a boldly segmented sculptural piece reminiscent of Art Deco decorative drama. Equally compelling is Hayley Smith’s The Hand of the Maker, in which the turned English sycamore is both burnt and painted. A wall piece, the strength of the simplified shape of the hands gains new visual power, evoking the silhouetted hands left by the first artists deep in prehistoric caves. Irish artist Roger Bennett’s Bowl, of sycamore and inlaid silver, is an essay in subtle design. It reveals how important a particular wood can be, even when ironically, the natural color is modified by the application of a colored woodstain. Bennett notes: “Sycamore is my favorite wood for coloring, as its paleness makes it an excellent natural canvas. I use Liberon waterbased woodstains. Sycamore can be a rather bland and uninteresting wood, and the effect of the stains is usually to enhance and enliven it. Different areas of the surface absorb the stain at different rates, creating a rich but subtle variation.”

Besides the added color, another post-modern touch in Bowl is the use of another material in combination with wood. Bennett explains, “The silver is silver wire. I mark out the pattern, and then drill hundreds (sometimes thousands) of holes into which I glue very short lengths of wire. In this piece, I have used five different diameters of wire to create a repeating pattern. I finish with Danish oil.” Equally impressive are several artists in the exhibit who employ color more monochromatically in conjunction with very sculptural forms. Christian Burchard’s Torso in Motion, of bleached madrone, continues his interest in wall-mounted panels, but with a compelling twist: the whiteness of the shaped body-like forms unites with an implied narrative, adding a significant emotional element to the three-panel composition. Much as Barbara Hepworth noted following her 1933 visit to Brancusi’s Paris studio wherein she recognized a “humanism which seemed intrinsic in all the forms,” Burchard also succeeds in creating forms that reconnect with the nature of their materials; the pale bleached skin of the wood communicates a physicality and intense emotion. Jennifer’s Granules of Truth by Brent Skidmore in reality may function as a somewhat “over-thetop” mirror, but strikes a note of playfulness in

46

F.

its extraordinary demonstration of physicality and gravity, its wit echoed by its title. The painted, carved and assembled string of basswood shapes, made using an ukibori technique and beautiful tonally related Golden Artist Colors, appears to levitate in space. It is impossible not to identify the shapes as stones and to mentally calculate their combined weight, seemingly momentarily suspended above the floor. It is a masterful, somewhat surrealist-inspired elegant composition, whose overall biomorphism of wood and glass creates a superb expression of organic design. Color has been especially useful to artists interested in investigating the illusionistic and suggestive possibilities of carved wood. Louise Hibbert’s Radiolarian Vessel VII, of English sycamore with silver, texture paste and acrylic inks, is a prime example. Seemingly naturalistically inspired, the object is at once real, yet somehow alien, inviting, yet repellent, both convincingly represented thanks to her understanding of the communicative power of color. So too, thanks to color, Nature Heals All Wounds by David Nittman convincingly references and communicates the illusionistic intricacy of the woven structure of basketry. Beyond the successful “real” illusion, what is particularly interesting about this piece is its overall composition conveying bold, new pictorial possibilities for the wood surface.

G.

Liberating pictorial aspects of color, even painterly aspects, have been successfully explored by many artists in A Perfect Marriage. Viewed in the light of these works, modernism has been both a blessing and a burden to the development of contemporary wood art. Regarding color and threedimensional form, modernism established certain cultural biases relative to the use of color on stone or wood sculpture, based on a flawed understanding of the aesthetics of antiquity and the Renaissance. The assumption of the purity of surface, the lack of coloration, we now know to be a false one. Antiquity, the Renaissance as well as medieval sculptors fully employed color when finishing sculptural form. Polychrome was more the norm. Time has often been the real enemy, erasing evidence of color’s presence in historic artworks. It was a great surprise to discover, following conservation after the 1966 flood in Florence, Italy, that Donatello’s much-admired wooden Penitent Magdalene of 1454-1455 possessed suntanned skin and blue eyes, and was vividly striated with gold. Ironically, even the medieval-inspired late 19th century Arts and Crafts Movement, which played a part in modernism’s interest in the honest use of simple traditional materials, employed modern industrial manufacturing practices.

Perhaps Craig Nutt best explains the wood artist’s conundrum: Once a subscriber to the inviolability of the natural beauty of wood, I got beyond the old taboo against painting wood when in the mid-1980s I did a series of turned vessels with colorful lacquered surfaces. Now, I turn to oil paints and lacquers to represent the vegetables with clarity. Truth to the subject trumped ‘truth to materials.’ I keep returning to the vegetable motif because it has developed into a personal and metaphorically rich vocabulary. These commonplace objects, at once products of nature and of human manipulation, taken out of their normal context and scale invite a fresh look at other wonders that routine renders mundane. They lend themselves to absurdity, humor, beauty, and even dignity. The adoption of the pictorial aspects of color is not necessarily an overnight decision for an artist, as Ron Fleming makes clear: Despite my experience in illustration, my early work was devoid of painterly expression, allowing the material to provide color and pattern. Yet, it was only a matter of time before I would combine my experience in painting with my work in wood. When I finally had control of the vessel form, I thought why not paint on the form?

Whether it is the flowers in Fleming’s Tradescantia or the vibrant flames and vegetables of Nutt’s Burning, color and its ability to bring to life a whole new vocabulary of form, is stimulating and liberating for both artist and audience alike. New levels of reference and meaning are possible when ideas from other parts of an artist’s imagination are tapped. Binh Pho’s Realm of Dream manifests all these qualities. While Nutt and Fleming may be converts to the virtues of color, Wayne Rabb and Giles Gilson have long been identified with its use. In the spirit of the lacquered wood of the French Art Deco master of the 1920s, Emile-Jacques Ruhlman, Rabb and Gilson share his wizardry when it comes to the creation of seductive polished surfaces. Giles Gilson’s Fantasy Unleashed is a complete example of a master at work.

value placed on individual expression. Through the freedom to use color, these qualities and many others have been transferred to the macrocosm of wood art. Paul W. Richelson, assistant director and chief curator, Mobile Museum of Art, Mobile, AL Published in conjunction with the SOFA CHICAGO 2008 special exhibition A Perfect Marriage: Wood and Color presented by the Collectors of Wood Art.

Whether it is the swirling mists of orange, yellow and red of Gilson’s Fantasy Unleashed, the organic overall patterns of Jacob Antonelli’s Green Cup or the expressive paint trails visible across the surface of David Ellsworth’s much earlier 1991 Nelaq II, all are statements of the capacity of one medium to affect change in another. Abstract Expressionism, Color Field, NEW NEW all describe over 50 years of the creative power of abstraction in contemporary painting. Many of the wood artists in this exhibit have been willing to embrace abstraction’s search for spirituality, its exploration of transcendence and its high

Transition & Transformation: The Mint Museum of Craft + Design Anew By Annie Carlano

Staying at the top of one’s game takes talent, energy, and the ability to know when to change course and how best to do it. Managing change requires a passionate determination to succeed, driven by a deep commitment to the team. The Mint Museum of Craft + Design team is in the process of undergoing rapid change and finding new ways to realize the goal of a greater, more dynamic and more relevant museum. Two major developments have hastened this transition. First, it was announced in 2006 that The Mint Museum in a private-public partnership with Wachovia Corporation, the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, will move into a new building designed by Machado and Silvetti, the Boston-based architects responsible for the recent renovations and expansion of the J. Paul Getty Villa. Slated to open in late 2010, the new museum will feature the architects’ characteristic classicism of form combined with a craftsperson’s understanding of materials, with public spaces that will be pleasant gathering spots as well as fitting environments for installation works by Dale Chihuly, Tom Patti, and Stanislav Libensk y´ and Jaroslava Brychtová. Nearly doubling The Mint Museum’s exhibition space, the new museum affords the opportunity to offer the public stateof-the-art interpretive technologies, while retaining the “human touch” with artist demonstrations and hands-on activities. A 250-seat auditorium will allow for scholarly as well as popular programs, and the expanded retail operation and café will provide a comfortable respite for the visitor. The second development is that the Mint Museum of Craft + Design has a new Director of Craft + Design – me. As a leader, I want to make the museum as exciting as it was when it first opened with a splash almost a decade ago. With the opportunity offered by a new facility and expanded exhibition space, we will reassert our core values of building a collection of masterworks, producing scholarly publications, and collaborating closely with contemporary artists who work with clay, metal, wood, glass and fiber, placing us

in the forefront of the craft world. That world – and the world in general – is not the same as it was in 1999, and the new Mint Museum of Craft + Design will become a forum for dialogues about current issues of concern in the field, such as craft theory, aesthetics and technology. Forging alliances within Charlotte, North Carolina, as well as nationally and internationally, we will find new ways to integrate craft and design into the broader discourse about art and society.
