In his evocative, cerebral ceramic objects, Andrew Lord brings physical form to intangible phenomena such as breathing, memories, and sunlight. Though he also produces drawings, bronzes, and mixed-media sculptures, clay is the primary material through which he explores his own body, the work of artists, thinkers, and authors he admires, and the places close to his heart. Gauguin’s ceramic works sparked his enduring fascination with this earthy medium, which he describes as “a sculptural material [that] reflects any physical gesture you can apply to it…It solidifies touch.” In earlier works, he foregrounded this physicality by tasting, biting, and squeezing clay into sensuous, semi-abstract forms. In more representational pieces, Lord pays homage to artists including Monet, Cézanne, Picasso, and Gauguin, who inspire him to refract his own vision of the world through art.
