Erik H Gellert

Out of Square

 

In this most recent body of work I have returned my attention to that of the square. Where previously I had married the wiggly elements of nature with the efficiency of the square I have now broken these elements apart and fused them together resulting in quirky, more animated forms. These works are built upside down and are righted only before being glaze fired. Thus imbued with a contradictory nature they very much are a reflection of me:

 

Between connection and isolation

Between naive and informed

Between man and woman

Between hidden and exposed

Between artist and craftsperson

Between naive and informed (yes, I’m repeating this one. Maybe, I just want to make sure you’re     paying attention. Or, maybe, I’m done trying to cover up all my mistakes.  Or, maybe, it’s     just a big one on my mind these days!)

Between loose and tight

Between madness and perfectionism

Between hostility and humor

Between greatness and obscurity

Between clever and cold

Between obsession and reality

 

These are some of the many coexisting pairs of sentiments I copied in my sketchbook while creating these works. While I hope the viewer of these pieces might come up with her own story I do feel the need to express these feelings I have been having in order to lessen the gaps between these worlds and attempt some real sense of communication with my work.
