ART STAR SEPTEMBER 5 – 26:

Organic Expressions by Carole Mauch

K Space Contemporary is pleased to announce our featured Art Star for September is Carole Mauch.  Art Star exhibitions show off the works of exceptional artists of the Coastal Bend.  The show is entitled “Organic Expressions” and includes Carole’s magnificent hand-built ceramic coil pots and other works.

Carole Mauch was born in 1955, in Henderson, Nevada and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Regarding her artwork she states,  “I began to visualize Art becoming a part of my life when I went back to college in 1998. At first all I wanted to do was make art with clay. I eventually created a style of my own which is very unique. I recognized my need to make art when I found myself working on a big coil pot at Texas A& M Corpus Christi. Thinking about life issues and working with clay has a healing quality.

I’ve worked with all types of medium such as: Clay, watercolor, oil painting, printmaking and mixed media. No matter what I’m working with the common thread that connects it all is texture. It may be visual, it may be tactile, or both. My subject matter is usually tied in with nature in some way or the other. I start with a general idea & then it happens spontaneously whether it’s clay or painting. I’ve created numerous quality pieces in the process but have remained true to my passion with clay. I use a large coil method and slab construction. I texture a lot of my clay pieces with hand carved rolling pins, and things I find in nature: Leaves, Rocks, Shells, Grass, and the list goes on and on. The final layer of texture is the firing process. It may be Raku, Reduction, Atmospheric Soda Firing or Sawdust Barrel Firing.”

2014 Third Coast National Juror Mark “Scrapdaddy” Bradford:  Mark Bradford (Scrapdaddy), a Houstonian for the past thirty-nine years, has had quite a diverse career in art. Having a great-grandfather that was an inventor, Mark caught the “creativity bug” at a very early age.Mark delves into many mediums of sculpture, such as metal, concrete, and chainsaw art, allowing his creations to truly be one of a kind. His main source of inspiration is the joy he evokes from both children and adults, when witnessing his many different pieces.

Mark has traveled all over the world, and through these travels, he has been fortunate enough to find continuous sources of inspiration. His work is featured throughout North and South America, as well as Europe. He has participated in several television shows, that include “Battle Bots”, “Junkyard Wars”,”Guinness Primetime Live” and even hosted two shows for the History Channel entitled “Scrapyard Scavengers.” Mark has also performed twice with two different creations of his at the Essen Show in Germany. He has been featured in the “Smithsonian Magazine” and “002″, and is regularly featured in newscasts and newspapers. Mark’s work has also recently been showcased in two solo exhibitions at the Art Car Museum, in Houston, TX, as well as the Beeville Museum of Art, in Beeville, TX.
