Jane Hartsook Gallery - Greenwich House Pottery
16 Jones St, New York
Wednesday - Saturday: 12 - 6 pm
Feb 23-Mar 23
Daniel Bare's sculptures are a critique on the wastefulness of American consumerism. He collects unwanted pottery from thrift stores, landfills and abandoned kiln sites and assembles them into stacks that often seem posed on the brink of collapse. Highlighting the uniformity of mass produced goods, Bare stacks similar items together making it seem as though they are replicating of their own accord. Other forms are more organic, resembling marine landscapes or waves of discarded consumer goods poised to overwhelm the viewer. Opening Reception: Fri, Feb 23, 5-7pm. Artist Talk: Fri, Mar 23, 3-4pm.
