Perrotin Gallery- Johan Creten: Sunrise / Sunset

Johan Creten is considered a precursor of the ceramics revival in contemporary art, alongside Thomas Schu¨tte and in the wake of Lucio Fontana. Through his use of clay, his proven knowledge of the materials, his careful attention to glazing, and his thoroughly physical grasp of the medium, he restored ceramics to majestic grace and paved the way for many young contemporary artists. The work of Johan Creten raises ceramics from a poor relation to a noble art.
