COGnition: Contemporary Wood-fired Sculpture by Richard Brandt, John George Larson, and Brad McLemore

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday July 04
Eutectic Gallery
1930 NE Oregon St.
 
The newish Eutectic Gallery showcases contemporary ceramic arts and crafts. Its latest show, COGnition, is all about cogs, wheels, gears, chains, and other imagery from the high industrial age. Richard Brandt’s sculptures exude a shimmering glow, while John George Larson’s have a geometric precision counterbalanced by an agreeably crude material thickness. Brad McLemore’s abstracted mechanical devices walk the line between depiction and evocation. Together, the artists perform a seemingly impossible task: using the eminently breakable medium of fired clay to portray objects made of impermeable metal alloys. Through July 28.
