Artist Talk: Joseph Pintz
Join us for a free artist talk by spring McKnight Artist Joseph Pintz.
Joseph Pintz’s minimal forms reference traditional pottery and implements associated with the hand. He describes his forms as both “minimal” and “mundane,” but within their stoic forms are layers of depth—from the rough earthenware clay to fragmented slips and an ever-evolving palette of monochrome translucent glazes. He writes, “On a formal level, they deal with issues of mass, line, and volume; while on a utilitarian level, they serve food—an act that requires physical participation. The rituals of eating and serving actively slow the viewer, allowing you to pay closer attention to the meal, the moment, and the company around the table.”
