Ceramic Wall Sculpture
Created by James Aarons
Shoal, a series of five vibrant ceramic paintings, draws upon the physical properties and geomorphic processes of shifting sands and wandering rivers. The erosive forces of rain and wind upon sediment and other natural evolutions are the incremental movements the artist looked to for inspiration. After years of creating crisp, colorful Dot Compositions, the artist decided it was time to see what else his materials might offer. The silting, slaking nature of clay and glaze seemed ripe for mining a new direction while utilizing the palette of deliciously saturated colors the artist is known for. These ceramic paintings come ready to hang in minutes with custom made cleats and can be installed individually grouped for a dramatic effect.
