Cascades and Glacial Landscapes

New Ceramic Sculpture by Jeff Shapiro

An online-only exhibition
Opening February 8, 2021

Departing from the gallery’s Japanese art focus, Joan B Mirviss LTD is delighted to present the ceramic sculptures of prominent New York-based artist Jeff Shapiro in CASCADES AND GLACIAL LANDSCAPES. While living in Japan for nine years, Jeff Shapiro received training in the ancient Bizen ceramic tradition; he now creates highly independent and personal sculptural works that are uniquely his own. It took a lifetime to achieve such "abandon", as he calls it, a process of letting go of the technical training to express a Japanese aesthetic “in a voice that is not Japanese.” A selection of his recent sculptures will be available in a special online-only exhibition at Joan B Mirviss LTD this February.
