David S. East: Forehandedness in the Jane Hartsook Gallery

March 1 - March 29, 2012
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 1st, 6-8pm

Jane Hartsook Gallery at Greenwich House Pottery is pleased to present Forehandedness - new sculpture by Baltimore-based artist David S. East. For his first solo exhibition with this gallery, East has created monuments of dailiness, sculptures that combine ubiquitous ornamentation and serene pastels - at times uniting technology and woven fabric - offering a genealogy of cultural homogenization. East's work is thoughtful however much the installation effortlessly transposes formalism and irony.

"The approach I have taken attempts to reflect on the monumental within the mundane, and seeks to bore out the middle of modernism to see its split-level by-products. The work rotates around these axes operating as much a strategy of thinking as of making." -David S. East.

David S. East is Chair of Ceramics at the Maryland Institute College of Art. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in juried and curated exhibitions, most recently at the GICBiennale 2011, Icheon, Korea and has received numerous awards including an Individual Artist Award form Maryland State Arts Council, the Lighton Foundation and the McKnight Foundation.
