Beer Can 15 (ceramic and silver sculpture)

2017

About

This is a ceramic "Beer Can" shaped sculpture with colorful graffiti-style glaze with a tile pattern in silver luster glaze. It also comes in a custom painted wooden crate that can be optionally displayed with the piece. The series explores the concepts of high and low while also referencing a long tradition of ceramics and craft media as functional or everyday objects and may also nod to various parts of art history such as Turkish Iznik patterns and the Rococo period with its "ornate" precious metal finish. These make a great unique gift of original contemporary art. There are only a few of these pieces left in the series! Jeff Schwarz (b. 1974) earned his MFA at Syracuse University and BFA at Slippery Rock University, specializing in ceramics. He currently works out of his two studios in Brooklyn and Pittsburgh and exhibits frequently across the country and the globe, from New York to South Korea, and many places in between. He produces both freestanding and wall-mounted ceramic sculptures with expressionistic painterly glaze effects and layering with cultural references from both rural and urban environments. The resulting works are alive with depth, intensity, and texture. His complex visual language through the ceramic medium is inimitable and exceptionally unique. He has a tremendous body of work and produces multi-dimensional pieces that meet the eyes of the most discerning collectors and curators. His current series of Stacks and Tiles have earned him multiple exhibitions and recognition in New American Painting in 2017 by Laura Phipps, Assistant Curator of the Whitney Museum of American Art. His work has also appeared in exciting press such as the New York Times, Hyperallergic, ArtNews, and Blouin Art Info.
