Dennis Gallagher: New Sculptures

Press Release

Dennis Gallagher continues his exploration of architectonic forms in the ceramic medium. His new works consist of geometric blocks stacked to create an unnerving balance between elements; chunky bench-like slabs that appear to be urban ruins in the landscape and vertical arrangements that read as figures on stages or pedestals. Their scored, gouged, and roughly glazed surfaces offer additional visual interest and contrast nicely with the cool elegance of the large forms.

Gallagher was born in San Bruno, CA and received his BA and MFA from Fresno State. He has taught at both the California College of Arts and Crafts and the San Francisco Art Institute. He was recently commissioned by the city of Sunnyvale to do a public sculpture that will be installed this summer in their new business park. He is included in several museum collections including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
