Here at Loyola, we love showcasing homegrown talent. Since his graduation in 2004, Loyola alumnus Thomas Schmidt has worked as an assistant to renown artist Ruth Duckworth, received his MFA at The New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, taught ceramic design at The China Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and co-founded the design team “Recycled China.”
Beginning with an exploration of the material limits of ceramics and expanding into a range of media and methods, this exhibition features a collection of work produced by Schmidt over the last ten years. From line drawings of shattered tile, digital prints of crumpled and scanned paper, torn open cubes of clay, and panels of aluminum fused with porcelain shards, Schmidt orchestrates and captures a variety of material moments for the viewer to experience and unfold.
Test Sequence is a part of our 2013-14 exhibition series.
