Hostler Burrows is pleased to present John Shea: New Work, an online viewing room of recent sculptures. Completed during the last months of 2019, this newest body of work represents Shea’s latest explorations in painted ceramic. Abstract forms, comprised of organic mounds merging with sharper geometric shapes, play host to Shea’s layered application of lushly toned color. The resulting works play with the viewer’s perception - appearing, at times, to reflect an imaginary light source, at others to actually luminate from within; all while striking a visually harmonious balance of form and surface.
John Shea is currently included in Color and Production: from the Atom to the Void - a collaborative exhibition between Collective Design Fair and Frieze NY curated by Libby Sellers. The exhibition opens to the public via the Frieze NY online viewing room Friday, May 8 (VIP access May 6-7). A solo-exhibition at Hostler Burrows is planned for 2021.
