PETER OLSON

As a professional photographer, Peter Olson has traveled the world many times over. From corporate culture to religious iconography, he finds meaning in the repetition of human expression. His recent ceramic sculptures draw upon his deep experience with the camera, to reimagine captured imagery in a cylindrical form. The images encasing each ceramic piece are left by ink from photographic prints that when fired, burn away leaving a permanent and detailed image from the iron oxide in the ink. These expertly collaged individual pieces give way toa fixed visual narrative, a kaleidoscope of imagery than spans centuries and continents. When joined this way, each motif contributes to a network of increasing complexity. The self-contained vessels result from meditations on visual experiences. These are cylindrical worlds where street photography coexists with images of classical sculpture in a celebration of the human form and our shared continuous history.
