Final Days: Ruan Hoffmann at Anthro
There's still time to catch the exhibition of one hundred ceramic plates, Much Love Me, by South African artist Ruan Hoffmann, currently on view through July 28 in the gallery at Anthropologie’s Rockefeller Center location.
Hoffmann is a painter and he approaches his ceramics as he would a canvas.
Some of his pieces, to me, resemble ripped patterned textiles while others have the faintest suggestion of iconic Wedgwood or old Asian pottery.
His abstract work also emphasizes the fragility of ceramics, with rims like deckle-edge G. Lalo paper (just my own analogy).
