Dow Redcorn Solo Exhibit

March 9, 2012

MudFire Gallery is very pleased to present the first solo ceramics exhibit by Dow Redcorn. Featuring functional work as well as complex ceremonial forms influenced by landscapes and shades of Osage Tribal imagery, Dow's work is imbued with subtleties and ambiguities - a far away, yet completely close and familiar sense. A Denver native currently residing in Atlanta, with a background in painting, an incredible talent for clay, and a profound interest in the natural world, Dow Redcorn makes clay come alive.

The exhibit opens online and in the gallery at 12:00 Noon on Friday, March 9. Meet the artist at the opening reception from 5-9pm that evening.

Work will be available for purchase online and in the gallery starting 12:00pm EST on opening day. Shipping is available to all 50 states and Canada.

More About Dow Redcorn Solo Exhibit



Dow Redcorn's functional and decorative ceramics reflect his lifetime fascination with forests and the life cycles of trees. Originally a painter, hailing from an incredibly artistic family, Dow treats his clay work as a three-dimensional canvas. His stoneware pieces, thrown on the wheel or formed from slabs, are textured to achieve a rich base surface, then layered with colored slips and stains and even used as screenprinting surfaces. In all Dow's forms, the surface represents a rich encounter with nature. His most recent work also summons images of animals, channeling some of the culture and imagery of his Native American Osage Tribe in N.E. Oklahoma.

For his first solo ceramics exhibit, Dow has created a body of work reflective of the meditative nature of clay. In hushed tones, with gentle fades and shadows, soaring pine trees emerge from the snow covered forest -- and this is just a coffee mug! His imagery perfectly fits the pieces, but makes them so much more. Reflecting on Dow's work, gallery curator Erik Haagensen says "It is nature, somehow stunned into silence. The inherent hardness of stoneware creates an amazing foundation for the spiritual nature of Dow's landscapes".

Occasionally the landscape escapes its canvas and itself becomes the tree, the animal, the seed. Dow's trompe l'oeil stumps, soil, acorns merge to the forefront of the painted landscapes, together creating a closer/further panorama. Viewing the exhibit in person allows the careful observer to see the tree separate from the forest, pick up the acorn that has somehow been blown off the top of the mountain, and visit with foxes and wolves that have left the canvas to hunt.

A combination of delightfully functional and very complex, elaborate work makes up this very special exhibit. A joy to use and a joy to see, Dow Redcorn's stoneware forms reflect all of the richness of fine art and fine craft.
