Nino Caruso: Terra Cotta
July 28 - September 27th, 2010
In a very distinctive way, Nino Caruso breaks with Italian ceramic traditions while reflecting in his works a thor- ough understanding and appreciation of those traditions. Similarly, he em- bodies the European humanism while freely using forms and techniques from Japan such as haniwa and raku.
He really makes people look at clay in a new way, always ready to point out its endless expressive possibilities. Tradition, improvisation and intuition are the factors that better describe his works. All the techniques he uses – even the ancient Japanese Raku technique – are revised based on his personal knowledge and taste.”
