Jason Green: Relocations
Jan. 24-Feb. 28, 2014
Jason Green is currently an adjunct professor teaching in the Foundations and Ceramics programs at Alfred University. He received his BFA from the University of Connecticut School of Fine Arts and his MFA in Ceramics from Alfred University. Green’s work with architectural ceramics began in graduate school and continued at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts in Maine where he began making sculptural tile using the historic molds he found there. His investigation of art, architecture and ceramics has continued to expand during his international travels to locations in China, Mexico, Italy, and France. Green’s work is informed by common themes, ideas, and motifs that are found among various cultures and time periods. Made using traditional processes in combination with digital and prototyping technologies, his forms are layered with decorative patterns appropriated from the past. He produces his sculptural tile by hand pressing clay into plaster and wood molds that are made using modular components of his own design.
Green’s work has evolved in the studio and during summer residencies at the Jingdezhen Sanbao Ceramic Art Institute in China and at the Office for the Arts at Harvard Ceramics Program in Cambridge. Early in his career he received and an Emerging Artist Grant from the American Craft Council as well as an Individual Artist Grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Green’s work has recently been exhibited at the Shanghai Doland Museum of Modern Art in China, the Tampa Bay Museum of Art, Harvey/Meadows Gallery in Aspen, CO, Pewabic Pottery in Detroit, and at the Strohl Art Center Gallery at the Chautauqua Institution. In 2013 Green received the Best of Show Award in New York State’s Southern Tier Biennial.
