Prescribing Art: Glenn Grishkoff and Brian Ransom OPENING RECEPTION

Brian Ransom Artist Statement:

All things hollow, or those that are in the form of a vessel, we humans among them, have the capacity to resonate. A resonant sound is produced when sonic waves bombarding off interior walls match peaks and valleys both coming and going.

Resonance has always fascinated me. In creating my sounding ceramic forms, I have formulated a specific clay-body, which yields a surprisingly hollow and haunting voice. All of my pieces are precisely tuned (in both pre and post firing) and, through the movement of air columns, can be highly interactive with audience members and participants.

Yet the metaphorical concept of resonance goes far beyond the realm of sound; in my work, I combine visual, historical, and spiritual resonances as well. I merge research and travel (studying in the Americas, Asia, and Europe) in developing an active dialogue which fuses my investigations into historical content, spiritual approaches to objects and sound, and the technical structures that I employ.. with the creation of new, original ceramic sounding sculptures.


Glenn Grishkoff Artist Statement:

California-based artist Glenn Grishkoff grew up watching his Chinese-born Russian father grind his own ink and brush iconic glyphs onto rice paper. This childhood memory and his own experience in Asia taught Grishkoff the power of a brushstroke and the spirit of natural materials. The sculptural objects and performances he creates with clay, paper, wood, metal, textiles and hair, reference his own story and the materials he uses. In his work, one sees a reflection of human experience as the artist pays homage to the animal spirit within the physical world.
