Topics Arts
Tara Thacker, Vermont based artist, will exhibit her gorgeous installations, comprised of hundreds of small ceramic parts. New large-scale photographs, made from the shadows of her sculptures, will accompany the installations. Her work is at once minimalist but with an abundance of parts. It moves between sculpture, design, and installation.

Artist's Statement

Thacker's sculptures are abstractions, referencing natural forms, utilitarian tools, fishing baskets and traps. The central theme is linearity. Similar to the way a line can mark the surface of a drawing. It is fluid, elegant, and simplistic. 

Highly tactile and monochromatic, repetition is central to the process. The works begin with a single element, which serve as architectural building blocks, which are then combined various ways to discover how they interact visually. Thousands of porcelain parts are tied and woven together to create ambiguous surfaces and landscapes.
