Thank you to the gallery @ormondeditions for showing my work in Zurich. The exhibition is on until mid-January. Here photographed my Ragaz vases in blown glass and lacquered in automotive paints. Each signed and numbered in an edition of 8. In the picture also a stunning wall sconce by @ozone_light called Gélule. #swissdesign#zurichgallery Obmannamtsgasse 19.

In September 2017 it was time for Miltos Manetas with his "Drawings quasi paintings" exhibition. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Born in 1964 in Athens, Greece, Miltos Manetas is a multimedia artist and theorist whose works explore the representation and the aesthetics of the information society. Manetas is the Founder of the Art Movement NEEN, a pioneer of MACHINIMA and an investigator of Internet Art. In 2009 Manetas initiated the Internet Pavilion for the Venice Biennial and form 2011 he directs the MACROeo (eletronicOrphanage at MACRO Museum in Rome). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
„DRAWINGS QUASI PAINTINGS“ I featured the artist' most recent body of work, in an attempt to trace the creative process that generated his series of "Cable Paintings", his"Looking at Computer Screens" series, his "Playing Videogames" paintings and his series of "Internet Paintings". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PLUTSCHOW GALLERY is pleased to announce its next exhibition in celebration of its 5 years: Carl Bucher.
Opening: December 13 - From 6 to 8 pm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Carl Bucher has never been assigned to any particular art direction or dogma. Essential to him was an attitude which could best be called "humanism". Accordingly, his artistic development and curiosity ranged from the initial glamor of Pop Art to the vehement confession of an intact humanity.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
His sculptures are today as warning calls at public hotspots. With the "Petrified" from 1979, Carl Bucher created a first memorial for the International Museum of the Red Cross in Geneva. In 1995 he realized the group "Hope" for the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg and finally in 2006 "Circle of Hope" in front of the seat of the UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bucher's works are represented in countless museums and collections worldwide.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The spring of that same autumn year, when those hefty marble basin and pedestal blocks rolled into my studio, my client, Jack Doll, invited me to join him on a visit to St George’s and the chapel (coined ‘heart of the hilltop’ and would one day be home to our font). During this visit, Jack gifted me this book, a compendium on the rich history of the chapel from conception to completion, with a focus on the beautiful iconic and artistic details of the chapel. Inside the pages of this labor of love he wrote me this inscription, “Thank you in advance for adding even more beauty to our chapel.” ...
The pics that follow are views from inside and surrounds of this glorious Chapel. John Nicholas Brown, an alumni of St. George’s, envisioned and funded - during his college years at Harvard 😮 - this lofty English gothic cathedral with the helping hand of architect Ralph Adams Cram. Brown’s Harvard pal Joseph Coletti, a gifted sculptor from Italy, brought to life the magnificent figurative sculptures and relief carvings that adorn this space. And Samuel Yellin, a renown blacksmith from Pennsylvania, made the beautiful strappings on the heavy wooden doors. The elegant Trajan lettering carved on the donor walls hail from the historic and famed John Stevens shop, now run by Nick Benson, in nearby Newport. #kerryofurlani#sculptorjourney#makingofafont#dragonsofsg#johnnicholasbrown#ralphadamscram#josephcoletti
She-Mountain (the fluttering of a double butterfly), maple, 28 1/2” x 10 1/2”x 7”, 2017...
This work sold last Saturday in my studio when a friend from out of town came to see me and brought his friends. These new friends fell hard for She-Mountain and committed to a purchase. So gratifying to witness the birth and evolution of their tenacious love during this studio visit...
Here’s to big-hearted friends who bring their friends into your studio for Saturday visits and the happen chance of studio sales. 🎉And to my newest collectors who, in their financial support, have given me the freedom to focus more on my studio work. And to the truth of #loveatfirstsight , the heart of my business strategy that is keeping me afloat.🌟#kerryofurlani#studiosale#supportivefriends
Cry from the Willow Stream (the taking of the pillar), charcoal, pastel, 30”x22 1/2”, 2018. This new work pays homage to my hero Charlotte Perkins Gilman, author of the 1915 utopian novel, Herland.
The ponytail girl at far top right is a nod to ancient Viking women, who sported the high ponytail for, oh, about 500 years! #kerryofurlani#herland#charlotteperkinsgilman #💪vikingwomen #womenheroes#feminismart#feminista
PLUTSCHOW GALLERY was pleased to announce Vitellotonnato, a group exhibition with Sergio
Breviario, David Casini, T-yong Chung and Marta Pierobon, June, 2016
History, tradition, abstraction, contemporaneity, hybridity, classical sculpture, craftsmanship, digital environment, information technologies, reality, fction, renaissance, identity, Italy, art, sculpture, installation, mineral, hands, death, spirituality, community – they all become a starting point of
an artistic exploration that instigates action, creates distance, layers the heterogeneous amalgam of actions and new meanings. This unexpected mixture of indexes, in the same vein as veal and tuna, creates an elegant, provoking and tempting cultural sediment. Folded together, enmeshed
into forms and volumes, this artistic body of work shows that events, very far from each other in chronology and narration, sometimes act as contemporaneous inmates. Time and history are not linear for them; they follow many dynamics and chaotic processes, they have many linearities which
provide a consistency. This consistency we call vitellotonnato. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yesterday, a friend asked me about the timeline of this standing stone. It is one of two slate sentinels with inscriptions that now stand at the gateway intersection of downtown Poultney. They are part of a community project I named, The Silent Friend Slate Project, in partnership with Poultney’s Historic Society. We were thrilled to receive funding from the Vermont Arts Council, the bulk of which went towards my salary. 😊 So - from the quarry pit pickin’ to these final days of carving - and with the helping hands of many - this second stone came to life in just over three months. This timeline does not include the many months preceding of behind the scene work of committee meetings, town meetings, speaking to community groups, etc. 😳 That, my friends, is another story for another day... 😉#kerryofurlani#standingstone#lettercarving#tiranti#publicsculpture#letterforms#insignia#poultneyvt#communitymatters#vermontartscouncil 🙏 #vermontsculptor
