Peters Projects is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by local Santa Fe artist James Marshall titled BLACK INTERFUSION. This will be Marshall’s first solo show at Peters Projects and will open Friday, February 24 from 5-7 pm. The exhibition will be on view through May 6th.
For nearly two decades Marshall has explored what he calls “The Liminal Object,” fueled by minimalist aesthetics and the potential for an ordinary object to shift dimensions and space. Marshall has had an intense period of working within limited parameters and putting them through the process of constant refinement and reduction.
Exploring new surfaces on his monolithic sculptures, the exhibition will be exclusively works in black on sculptures that are the artists’ signature forms. These new works exhibit an additional element, that of interfusion. This is revealed on his surfaces with two matte glazes, a dense black and a pewter or gunmetal black, each occupying an area within the piece.
Marshall received his MFA at the University of Michigan and has exhibited extensively during his career with well over 15 solo exhibitions around the US. His work is included in the collections of the Nerman Museum, Kansas City, MO; the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale, AZ; the Daum Museum, Sedalia, MO plus numerous other public institutions. Marshall is head of ceramics at Santa Fe Community College for the past 18 years. A discussion with Marshall and Garth Clark will be presented on the following day, Saturday February 25 at 2pm in the gallery. This interview (which will be filmed) is open to the public.
