Art has become increasingly cross-disciplinary over the past several decades. Many artists today no longer confine themselves to one medium or one approach, but instead explore multiple materials and modes of creative expression. This phenomenon has affected ceramics as much as any other genre.
Breaking Boundaries features the work of four Canadian artists under the age of 40 whose work illustrates a variety of cross-disciplinary approaches to contemporary ceramic art. Although each of these artists approaches ceramics from a different perspective and integrates clay with other materials in different ways, their work collectively makes a strong case that ceramics remains a vital and relevant part of contemporary art practice in the 21st century. The four artists included in the exhibition are Brendan Tang from British Columbia; Marc Courtemanche from Saskatchewan; Shary Boyle from Ontario; and Carmela Laganse from Quebec.
