Robert Flynn: Changes

October 6 - 27, 1985

"Flynn is making a variation of ceramic objects: large and small storage jars, teapots, covered baskets, vases, platters of various sizes and trophies. They can best be described in a term he coined himself 'the Neolithic baroque.'" It's a term that perfectly captures the antagonistic impulses that are informing his work. Put simply, the struggle is between aspects of  the barbaric and the refined and Flynn himself is not averse to containing this polarity within a cultural framework..." Essay by Robert Enright.
