Prof. William Catling in solo show at AMOCA
Posted: July 10, 2012
William Catling is a nationally and internationally shown sculptural artist and is deeply invested into the Southern California community. William is the Chair and has been a Professor in the Department of Art and Design for several decades. His most recent exhibition is a solo venture at the esteemed American Museum of Ceramic Art, in their new location in downtown Pomona, CA.
This group of ceramic sculptures in William Catling: Of Time and Days, is informed by the artists’ interest in reconnecting to natural life rhythms. The works reflect a seasonal way of thinking and are made in a direct association with times of day or month. The figures are roughly life sized and designed to be symbolic of an internal journey, quietly impacting the space around them or the viewer who comes close. The figures have a rough, textured surface, inspired by natural rock and earthen formations.
The exhibition Of Times and Days is on view in starting this July and is open to the public. The opening reception is July 14 from 6:00-9:00pm.
