Southwest School of Art
Russell Hill Rogers Gallery I
San Antonio, TX
February 21—April 28, 2013
The artists featured in Mock/Bite transform often kitsch ceramic and porcelain figurines into high art by infusing them with political images and social propaganda. Historically innocent subject matter is contrasted with edgy and provocative themes. The ceramic artists in this exhibition, while individually distinctive, are linked by their satirical use of these re-contextualized figurines to convey biting contemporary insights. Viewer discretion advised.
Artists included: Pavel Amromin (Florida), Russell Biles (South Carolina), Michelle Erickson (Virginia), Benjamin Schulman (Maryland), Linda Vallejo (California)
