OMMU is pleased to announce the first solo show of the artist Jessica Hans (Baltimore, MD, USA) in Greece, ‘Salt of the Earth’.
The exhibition is inspired by themes involving the materiality of our world. The forms and surfaces seen here are in direct response to abstract patterns and motifs that you may find in nature. The functional aspect of ceramics plays a significant role in this body of work; this material that comes from the ground has roots deep in the history of mankind and has served a purpose in our lives for thousands of years. Salt of the Earth is a translation of the textures and designs that we find in nature into vessel-like forms. The artist is interested in giving the viewer the opportunity to experience, in tangible form, a refined essence of our world.
Jessica Hans is a Baltimore-based artist with a background in ceramics and textiles. When not in her studio, she is constantly traveling and documenting the natural world around her.
