James Aarons: Three Gentleman


Three Gentlemen, by ACGA member James Aarons was curated into the Southern Miss Ceramics National.  Curator, Anthony Stellaccio (Executive Editor of Studio Potter Magazine) selected 65 original works from a pool of more than 430 entries.  Three Gentlemen, part of a series of distillations from anonymous photographs, combines contemporary techniques (Photoshop) with time honored production (screen printing) on an age old material (porcelain).  Found objects complete the work and set the tone of mysterious antiquity.  When grouped, the prints suggest intentional family albums where long forgotten relatives flicker briefly back to life.
