Anton Reijnders: Visiting Artist Lecture
(7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
- Link: alfredceramics.com
Anton Reijnders, an internationally recognized ceramic artist, will present a lecture about his work on Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013 at 7 P.M. in Binns Merrill Lecture Room 106.
Reijnders has exhibited throughout the world and has work in public collections in Europe, Asia, and the United States. For 17 years he was in charge of the materials research program at the European Ceramic Work Center in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands. In that role, he worked with many well-known artists, including Tony Cragg, Anish Kapoor, Johan Creten, and Jun Kaneko.
Many Alfred University alumni have participated in the EKWC residency program. Reijnders was a Visiting Faculty in the Division of Ceramic Art at Alfred University in 2006. He is a member of the International Ceramics Academy.
Reijnders is the author of "The Ceramic Process, A Manual and Source of Inspiration for Ceramic Art and Design." Based on his research at the EKWC, the book covers ceramic materials in process in great detail. It is one of the essential texts that should be on every ceramic artist’s bookshelf.
On his website, www.antonreijnders.nl, Reijnders describes his artistic practice:
"My work stems from a fascination with questions of meaning and how we make sense of what is around us. I want my work to offer an opportunity for concentration and to provide an alternative to images that are increasingly subservient to quick effects."
