Biography

With an approach based on homage and experimentation, Jesse Wine produces witty, expressive ceramic objects and installations. “Making things is a strange exercise; there is always a fundamental goal relative to the imagined result,” he has said. “Abandoning this goal is often the key to unlocking something interesting in the creative process…. [My] outcome is absolutely never what I set out to do, even when I stick to the rules completely.” His exuberant work encompasses vessels that could not hold anything; faces and body parts, often his own; everyday objects including plates of food, shoes, and artists’ tools; and copies of pieces by his ceramist forebears, such as Ken Price and Peter Voulkos. For one of his installations, Wine crafted a series of partially realized self-portraits that offered poignant, humorous glimpses into his life.
