Featured Artist: Theo Uliano
August's Retail Gallery window features the work of Theo Uliano, a ceramic artist living and working in Huntingdon Valley, PA. Theo's vessels — plates, cups, vases, bowls — are created using intentionally naive or clumsy building methods and decorated with expressive underglaze paintings, luster additions that highlight imperfections and drips, gooey glazes, and gestural drawings, scratches, and scribbles. The paintings are either narratives of everyday life or intuitive expressions of emotion and material. Through his mark-making, Theo brings his pots "into the territory of the trite, gaudy, cliché or obnoxious. Some surfaces are cute and some sinister, some can be taken at face value and some are subversive. I want this representation of my daily life and my experience in it to be complete with all of its trends, fashions, fractures, failures, and fleeting anecdotes."
As always, your purchases support the artists and SAC education and outreach programs.
