Kaufmann Repetto presents the first exhibition in Europe by New York-based ceramic artist Bruce M. Sherman. Sherman’s practice deals with real and imaginary stories: his artistic research sees functional ideas hidden into emblematic shapes. The sculptures simultaneously utilize these iconographic symbols to evoke surreal and imaginative experiences through the use of Sherman’s unique vernacular. The pronounced presence of eyes and hands in Sherman’s work alludes to spirituality and investigations of Eastern influences. His works stand like a gathering of many Gods but also like an approachable cluster of companions.
On view until March 18th at Kaufmann Repetto Gallery, Via di Porta Tenaglia, 7, Milan.
