You still have time to make it down to Galerie Perrotin to see Johan Creten’s excellent show, God is a Stranger (New York City, September 9 – October 31, 2015). Our initial post on the exhibition was a popular one for us, so we thought we’d showcase some new photographs that have surfaced since we ran our original preview.

We focused on Creten’s abstract ceramic sculptures in the last post, works that used multiple ceramic vulvas under titles such as New York Beauty. In this post we showcase the artist’s golden luster on glazed stoneware sculptures. Diverging from the earlier works’ themes of sensuality and warmth, his golden sculptures move us toward a higher sphere, carrying the viewer to a place of spiritual ecstasy.
