Ralph Bacerra Retrospective

with 2 comments

BacerraOtis College of Art and Design is planning a retrospective exhibition on the work of Ralph Bacerra. Titled Exquisite Beauty: The Ceramics of Ralph Bacerra, it will be presented in the Ben Maltz Gallery, and is scheduled to open in the fall of 2015. This recognition of Bacerra’s work is well-deserved, as Bacerra was a widely acknowledged master of elaborately decorative techniques. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue.

Influenced by his travels to Japan, China, and Taiwan, Bacerra’s artwork achieved a sophisticated synthesis of surface and form. Speaking about his work, Bacerra stated, “I am committed more to the idea of pure beauty. When it is finished, the piece should be like an ornament, exquisitely beautiful.”
