Chapter XI : Vases
VERNISSAGE : THURSDAY JULY 18, 7-10PM, TORONTO
Toronto based ceramic artist Naomi Yasui presents an installation of porcelain vases
titled Chapter XI : Vases, on view at Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects
from July 12th-18th.
The performance and installation can be viewed from the street, but the gallery will
be closed to the public. To schedule an appointment please contact either Katharine
Mulherin (Director) or Naomi Yasui (Artist). The exhibition will be open to the public
during the Vernissage on Thursday July 18th, 7-10pm.
Made in the last year, these seven off-white porcelain vases are minimal in colour
yet dynamic in form. Standing roughly 7"x7"x15", each vase bares the maker’s hand
in it’s pinched base. The vases differ in their forms, some precariously balancing,
and are glazed in a variety of matte neutral tones; splashes of crème, light grey, and
oatmeal. These neutral glazes highlight the lines created by Yasui’s fingers when
shaped on the potter’s wheel.
Combining her pottery with botanical watercolour painting and floral arrangement,
Yasui will work with Heather Goodchild and Lisa DiQuinzio to activate the exhibition.
Each day of the installation, Yasui will create a floral arrangement in one of her vases
that will become the basis for a still life watercolour painting. These arrangements and
paintings lend insight into an ongoing process and practice. The watercolours and
their still life subjects will remain on display during the run of the exhibition.
