Ceramic artist Kristin Kowalski joins the BOJUart gallery’s featured artist roster
BOJUart gallery is pleased to announce that ceramic artist Kristin Kowalski has joined as a featured artist displaying her work. Gallery Director Judy Jessen explains, “We’re rapidly growing the artist roster and it’s been intentional to add three-dimensional artwork to offer diversity and integrate with the gallery’s artwork.”
Kowalski’s ceramic sculpture strives to create a feeling of intimacy between the interactions of the abstracted forms. Those experiences lead to a floral or blossom element that represents the peak of the experience. She chooses to have her work very sensual, playful and slightly dark, and creates those feelings with the combination of form, color and surface texture. The floral elements in her work have been inspired from her garden. Kowalski is inspired by the process and transformation that occurs in nature and feels this growth and cultivation echoes life’s experiences. She wants viewers to relate to her work through the relationships of the forms, the representation of colors, and the formal elements and aesthetics of the pieces.
BOJUart donates a portion of each piece sold to this artist’s cause the Friends of the Earth International to emphasize the need to have a peaceful and sustainable world based on societies living in harmony with nature.
All work exhibited is available for sale at the gallery, online or by phone.
