Online Artist Talk with Eliza Au
Wednesday, January 19, 2022, 5:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Exhibition on view January 7 through February 4, 2022


The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present Eliza Au’s first solo exhibition in New York City. Au’s installation consists of a series of ceramic lattice screens, which use ornament and repetition to reexamine sacred space. She uses computer-aided design (CAD) to create repeated abstract patterns that she translates into clay, constructing forms that evoke architectural units like bricks, tiles, and pillars to inspire a sense of meditative rhythm. The finished ceramic works are a physical manifestation of the computer-based wireframe in which structure and ornament become inseparable. Their composition is so detailed that the negative space defines the work as much as the positive space, creating a compelling duality of form that, along with the structure’s abstract patterning, creates a window into a calmer world.

Join us for an online artist talk and opening reception of The Architecture of Solace on January 19 at 5:00 p.m. EST
