Erik Gellert is an artist based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His aptitude for the arts first emerged out of the medium of clay leading him to pursue the study of drawing and painting. He applied these skills working as a preservationist, collaborating with historians to recreate wall textures and color schemes in many notable homes including the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio. He moved from Chicago to Santa Fe in 2011 to pursue advanced studies in ceramics.

Gellert’s new body of work comprises undulating surfaces that continually break the planes, protruding and receding.  There is an organic feel to the works, suggestive of coral or even skeins of yarn.  The suggestion of chance is belied by a overall rhythm to the surface and the use of acrylic paint, as opposed to traditional glazes, provides control over the coloration.  The monolithic, slab shape lends an insistent presence to the spatial environment.

Erik H Gellert Statement

‘My works are cause and effect relationships in material form. Each piece is comprised of hundreds and, many times, thousands of hand rolled coils of clay. Their hand rolled nature gives each coil a slight irregularity and a distinction which informs the overall shape and patterns that comprise each work. Both consciously and unconsciously, I add my own input into the work in the stacking of these individual coils in creating manifestations of chaotic beauty. I have begun integrating the use of acrylic paint in my work in order to achieve more brilliant, varied color schemes that cannot be achieved utilizing traditional ceramic processes.’
