Sculptor, ceramist, and author Marc Lancet: Comparative art inquiry
Lancet is a contemporary artist who has worked in diverse
traditions, from ancient Japanese tea culture and contemporary American
art to the German, Japanese, and American Fluxus artists of the 1950s.
He freely incorporates the values, principles, and aesthetics he
encounters into his artistic inquiry. The intersections of these diverse
cultural influences abound with commonalities and contradictions, and
Lancet searches these junctures to find abundant inspiration.
Comparative Art Inquiry is the process that has emerged from his work at
these cultural crossroads.
About the artist:
Marc Lancet is the coauthor of Japanese Wood-fired Ceramics, translated into German and Chinese. His art is in numerous collections, including those of the Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Center in Japan, the International Ceramic Center in Denmark, the United States Embassy in Estonia, the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, and the Fluxus+ Museum and the Keramik-Museum Berlin in German. He lives in Davis, California, with his wife Annette and his daughter Evan.
