Lut Laleman: Selected works, 2017-2019
These works are handmade with very thin coils of porcelain, stressing the luminosity of the material. The double walled form contributes the relationship between visible/invisible and internal/external. Both mathematical walls go into dialogue with each other. There arises a game of altered color and intensity. The spatial context is enhanced by the lacquered bottom to have claire-obscure effects.
Dualisms and contrasts are at the forefront in these works. Black and white geometric shapes are seen as unseparable pairs.
The shapes are open up, creating a maze-like netstructure by not filling in the object completely with material. Even when working with double-walled forms, the usage of clay create light and dark effects.
Bowls in its pure forms go on. Countless microscopic pieces of porcelain are inlaid in the double-wall bowls.
By alternating numerous white and black dots, the surface emits a mathematical rhythm and make up a uniform surface.
The sculptural forms are geometric constructed designs, like archtectural designs in a lace, a lace that embracing the space. There is a kaleidoscopic play of light between the rhytmic patterns.
