Shae Bishop and Emily Duke Exit Show
September 5 - October 31, 2014
2100 Walnut St, Kansas City, MO 64108
An exhibition of new works by Shae Bishop and Emily Duke marks the culmination of their artistic residencies at Red Star Studios.
Shae Bishop’s application of pattern to ceramic surfaces and his figurative sculpture forms made of interconnected ceramic tiles, merge the physical characteristics of clay and textiles. By combining specific references and elements from diverse historical and personal sources, he creates complex and thought-provoking visual interplay.
Emily Duke’s ceramic sculptures address concepts rooted in architecture, the American landscape, and manufactured serviceable objects. Using slab-built terra cotta clay, Duke assembles forms bound by tension and weight. Her latest series of ceramic sculpture is a convergence of imagined and fabricated objects.
