Elisa d'Arrigo, Some Vases
Elisa D'Arrigo's show, Some Vases, at Elizabeth Harris Gallery is a perfect merge of painting and functional ceramics. Her crumbled, squished and torked vases are like extra arms offering their assistance. They're not photographed with flowers here, but they are displayed with them in the show. Add to the form, the lusciously glazed, drawn and incised surfaces and jaunty color choices and all I can say is yum!
