This time last year Bahamian ceramicist Alistair D. Stevenson was preparing for his solo exhibition ‘Pomp & Pageantry’ at Doongalik Art Gallery. Stevenson’s practice at the time was concerned with translating fine art and organic forms into man-made designs in his effort to explore the commercial ceramics market. His work examined the burden of beauty through ornate sculptural objects and elegant statement necklaces, which personified flamboyance and egoism.
The All of My Emotions artist talk will be held on Sunday, 27th August at 3pm and the exhibition opening on Tuesday, 29th August, both at Doongalik Art Gallery and Studios, #20 Village Road, Nassau, The Bahamas. Any interested person is invited to attend as it would be both my pleasure and that of Doongalik to have you in our presence.
In recent years, ceramic art has resurfaced and undoubtedly gained renewed respect internationally within contemporary art. For Bahamian ceramicist Alistair Stevenson, this is an exciting time to be pursuing studies at the Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute in Jingdezhen, China, a world-famous historical capital city of porcelain.
Back on summer break from Jingdezhen Ceramics Institute in Jingdezhen, China, ceramicist Alistair Stevenson has found ways to keep himself busy as the first artist in resident of Exnihilo Art Center.
