2014 Zanesville Prize Finalists Gallery
Artist: David Bogus
Medium: Ceramics
Artist's Statement: My artistic vision becomes realized when ideas from contemporary design, sculpture, and crafts are combined into installation and mixed media formats. Creativity is cultivated utilizing a search for identity and self-discovery. Concepts are informed by material inquiry experiments, process, interactions with others, travel, and ideas from our culture. Each work explores personal history, nostalgia, and cultural connotations within a highly personal and impulsive narrative. My technique utilizes low fired, slip cast earthenware that has been fired multiple times at different temperatures in an electric kiln. The installation process experimentally seeks creative site-specific configurations of personalized objects that are the results of material inquiry."
