I am thrilled about the following exhibits in New York City and I am planning a trip up to New York to see them in November.
One is a current exhibit at the Gagosian Gallery featuring the work of my favorite potter, Edmund deWaal. Mr. de Waal is also an accomplished and brilliant writer, whose most notable book is the “Hare with the Amber Eyes”, which I featured on one of my blogs last year. It was one of my favorite books of recent memory so if you haven’t read it yet, be sure you do.
The exhibit titled “Atemwende” (Breathturn), a term derived from the poet, Paul Celan’s 1967 poetry collection, features the largest collection of his work to date. DeWaal carries on the tradition of Oriental ceramics, while celebrating their refinement and beauty with a minimalist approach. His watery color palettes for his glaze could inspire a whole room.
