Integration/Disintegration Cup Saucy #4, 2016. Christopher Reid Flock.
As an experimental ceramic artist, Christopher Reid Flock’s work is profoundly influenced by the significant time that he spent in Japan and the mentorship that he received from some of Canada’s most respected potters. Among other accolades, Flock was the recipient of the Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramics in 2014 and was shortlisted for the Gardiner Museum Permanent Sculpture Competition in 2016. Flock lives and has a studio in Hamilton, Ontario.
Although this ambitious exhibition includes some works from Flock’s earlier career, it features more prominently his large-scale, installation-based works that whimsically play with notions of function while merging rapid prototyping with classical clay process. Integration/Disintegration includes six main bodies of Flock’s work.
A companion exhibition called Mentorship: Harvest, Flow, Ferment features selected works by Flock’s most influential mentors, Bruce Cochrane, Diane Nasr O’Young and Kayo O’Young. Works for this exhibition have been borrowed from private collections across Canada as well as through a significant loan from the Art Gallery of Burlington.
