New York, NY – Greenwich House Pottery is pleased to present Donna Green in the Storefront Gallery. Green’s work embodies the expressive exploration of form and surface, navigating this quintessential sculptural conundrum with a subtle and delicate balance.

“Voluptuous and oozing with glaze, this series of sculptures attempt to represent a gestural and evocative manipulation of clay. The vessels are made with stoneware coils that are pressed together then scraped and pushed and poked as the wheel slowly spins. The work strives to communicate the expressiveness of the clay and how far the material can be contorted, pushing the boundaries of classical forms in a physical sense.

The sculptures are about the clay – it’s strength and malleability – and how the clay interacts with the fire of the kiln and with the fluid nature of the glaze. All pieces were made and fired at Greenwich House Pottery.”—Donna Green 

Donna Green is a sculptor, potter and photographer, who holds a degree in Industrial Design from the Sydney College of the Arts in Australia. She moved to New York and joined Industrial Design Magazine as one of its editors. Donna then began working in clay, studying at Greenwich House Pottery and the Parsons School of Design. Her work has been exhibited at Japan House and Greenwich House Pottery and in Australia at the Ray Hughes Gallery and the Legge Gallery both in Sydney. She has participated in workshops at the Anderson Ranch Art Center in Colorado and the Good Hope Plantation in Jamaica. Donna continues to work at Greenwich House Pottery as well as in her Long Island Studio. 

Concurrently, Steven Young Lee will be exhibiting in the Jane Hartsook Gallery

Steven Young Lee

April 11 - May 9, 2013
Artist Reception: Thursday, April 11, 6:00 - 8:00 pm

New York, NY - The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present Montana-based artist Steven Young Lee in New York City Solo Exhibition debut. Lee explores identity through the appropriation of historical style. Though his approach is characteristically postmodern and he addresses identity through the substance of existence via cultural constructions, his approach is refreshingly not ironical.

“My work investigates how individual realities are formed. I am fascinated in concepts and development of self that are based on identification with environment, traditions and superstitions while often straddling cultural boundaries…challenge[ing] preconceptions that can reshape our sense of identity and culture.

The pieces I create appropriate elements of form, decoration, color, image and material that are distinct from specific cultures or periods in history…I see these as reminders of the past, but also as objects that I have become emotionally invested in discovering my own sense of place.”—Steven Young Lee 

Steven Young Lee is the Resident Artist Director of the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana. A native of Chicago, Lee received his MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2004. In 2004-5, he lectured and taught at numerous universities throughout China. While there, he created a new body of work as part of a one-year cultural and educational exchange fellowship in Jingdezhen, Jianxi Province. A former Bray resident, Steven also spent a year teaching at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, B.C. in 2005-2006.

In the United States, he has taught classes at Alfred University, Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan, the Clay Art Center in New York and the Lillstreet Studio in Chicago. His work has been exhibited in China, Canada and throughout the United States and is held in private collections in New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Montana.

Lee maintains an active studio practice rooted in both functional and sculptural ceramics. His current work examines cultural references and how individuals draw realities based on experiences and environment. Through his sculpture and vessels, he challenges pre-conceptions of style, form, symbolism, superstitions and identity.
