~DEREK WEISBERG . . life as a flower vase / TRESTLE PROJECTS OPENING SAT, MARCH 25
SUPER / HARD-CORE CONTEMPORARY . . . & YET, VERY WISE & ANCIENT
FUNCTIONAL CERAMIC / HAND-BUILT CLAY / FLOWER VASE . . BY DEREK WEISBERG
so, I’m thinking this vase must be inspired by the centuries-old traditional . . ‘TULPIERE’, which is enjoying a current wave of great popularity.
see: Tulipiere – wikipedia
read: a brief, but very interesting paragraph – on the TULIP MANIA OF 1660’s HOLLAND !!

the show, titled ‘NEW FINE ART’ . . .

and seems to examine the new role / or / the new ‘viewing of the role’ of “traditional fine art materials” – a timely topic.
the show opens . . this SAT MARCH 25, 2017 / 7 – 9 PM
and runs thru APRIL 6, 2017.

note: TRESTLE PROJECTS IS OPEN TO VIEWING – BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
“This exhibition presents a small sampling of Brooklyn-based artists whose practices are centered around traditional traditional fine art materials. Through mimicry, remediation, and unconventional applications, these artists push the limits of their materials and explore a corresponding sensuality. By employing a range of responsive processes, each artist engages in an unfolding dialogue between the self and the material – a transference between hand, form, and thought.
In this way, the artists in ‘NEW FINE ART, see their processes as both a method of inquiry to explore physical materiality as well as tools to realize unconscious and psychic visions.”
