Sergei Isupov Estonia/USA
Exhibition 25 January - 24 February 2018
From Russian avantgarde to international contemporary ceramic art.
World renowned contemporary artist Sergei Isupov exhibits new thoughtful surreal pieces in Copenhagen, Denmark.
For this exhibition Sergei Isupov has specifically worked with a number of figurines and wall objects in smaller formats.
He is acknowledged for his original painted ceramic pieces of fascinating themes from the Russian history to a wonderful contemporary diversity - about life.
He works in porcelain and uses traditional hand-modelling and sculpture techniques, but here the traditional ends to make room for a surprising imagery that unfolds on the 3D forms of the pieces. Each side represents a new motif and nothing is as expected at first glance.
Isipov tells multilateral stories, combining surface and form with narrative painting, oxide, colour stains and clear glaze.
His ceramic works are masterfully performed - and it is with great pleasure that the Gallery has been given this opportunity to show these amazing art pieces for a Danish audience.
Grateful thanks to The Danish Art Foundation for project funding in 2018.
