Dutch sculptor, ceramicist and glass artist, Barbara Nanning has a beautiful collection of her work being shown in New York City at the J.Lohmann Gallery. She is very often known for her monumental works that are commissioned to adorn public spaces. However, her current selection is a graceful deconstruction of shapes that are reminiscent of organic origins created in glass and on a much smaller scale than her urban constructions. The striking composition of color makes an eye-catching statement.
Nanning explains her work as:
Nature is my source: plants, leaves, roots, water and the wind. Natural phenomena have been an everlasting inspiration for me, be it the Milky Way or the rise and fall of waves in an eternal, natural movement. In clay, my thrown shapes have evolved into concentric spinning objects without a beginning or end. They represent eternal movement, the primeval source of life on earth. In order to make these forms seem even more weightless, intangible and floating, I gave them a rich, velvety surface and a light monochrome colour.
These exceptional pieces showcase Nanning’s artistic range. The jeweled pieces are a perfect compliment to the J. Lohmann Gallery who specializes in 20th century and contemporary design and decorative arts with an emphasis on European designers and artistic movements.
