Annamaria Gundlach: Clay Dreams
Opening reception: Friday, September 1, 5:00-9:00 PM
Exhibition hours are Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
As a figurative artist, Annamaria Gundlach is fascinated by the female form and its impact on art and religion throughout history. Nature is her inspiration, and her figures reflect sensuality, strength and connection to the earth.
“Each of my clay sculptures has its own voice which speaks as I create it,” says Gundlach. “I strive to create organic figures that exude natural elegance. I burnish and pit-fire my work so the smoke ages and mutes the colors with a patina that has a haunting suggestion of lost and forgotten eras. I refer to my work as ‘modern artifacts’. This oxymoron reflects my contradictory intent of modern elegance achieved with primitive methods and various surface enrichments that connect the past to the present.” For more information, please visit http://artdeannamaria.weebly.com/.
