The slip cast porcelain assemblages of Chicago born sculptor Nelson Gregory Reyes serve to critique our relationship with the human, technological and spiritual self. The work is a conglomeration of shapes through geometric repetition, creating technological totems.
The forms are at once intricate and visually concise. Sampling anatomical structures, mechanical components, science fiction vocabularies, graffiti culture, and global spiritual iconography, the geometric structures call into question origins of belief, the futility of the art object, and normative beliefs while embracing that which unites us.
In 2017, Nelson moved to Jingdezhen China to strengthen his practice and understanding of the porcelain tradition.
