Drawing on my experimental career as an academic neuroscientist, my conceptual porcelain works and gestural abstract works revolve around contemporary, representational and non-representational forms. My porcelain work includes slip-casts of delicate objects and slip-casts of self-made molds, both requiring continued experimentation. My draw to porcelain is related to its fragility and transparency, and the preservation of fine detail. Oil and cold wax can yield some similar visual effects through the use of transparency and textural details. My evolving artistic images derive from my intrinsic responses to life and my environment and is influenced by contemporary social issues. This range of internalized emotions is expressed and continuously revised using a variety of experimental tools to create provocative slip-cast porcelain sculptures, as well as abstract oil and cold wax paintings. My current work focuses on integrating these two approaches. My education and career developed in the early seventies in institutions throughout the Midwest. I moved to Detroit, MI in 1978 and since 2011 live in Ann Arbor, MI., where I have trained with regional and national artists in diverse media, currently focused on ceramics, and oil and cold wax. https://www.eingridtietz.com
