Brian Caponi — of skin and stone
Posted on March 6, 2014
Brian Caponi creates work that represents and shifts perspectives of thought.
I consider the implications and interactions of architectural space/object space/and image space as concurrent conversations and tools to exhaust modes of representing and shifting perspective of a thought. The intricacies and consistencies of the work move through these ranges of space and matter, employing material, process and conceptual concerns in varied pace. The work doesn’t sit solely in one space or another, but tends to situate itself around the blurry moment where one dissolves into the next. A potent transition, like the subtle shift between interior and exterior, utterance and articulation, present and longing.
Brian Caponi studied a Bachelor of Fine Art (Sculpture) from Grand Valley State University and a Master of Fine Art (Ceramics) from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University.
