All pictures: Brian Rochefort
Los-Angeles primarily based blended media sculptor Brian Rochefort makes use of ceramic and glazes to create one-of-a-kind vessels coated in summary patterns and textured blobs. Unfired clay objects are damaged aside, constructed upon with extra materials, then fired between every layer of glaze to supply volcanic lots or craters, overflowing with coloration and character.
The surfaces of the sculptures are a mix of tough, uneven clumps and clean, bubbly drips, all suspended in place by the kiln firing. Stable vibrant chunks movement over beforehand laid gradients whereas cracked exteriors peek from beneath translucent splatters. The ultimate types are a colourful reflection of the method, which makes every close-up picture that Rochefort shares on Instagram really feel like a unique piece.
Following a current solo exhibition at Van Doren Waxter Gallery in New York, Rochefort is gearing up for a two-person present with artist Jackie Saccoccio at Adrian Rosenfeld Gallery in San Francisco this Might.
