About the artist:
My name's Reniel Del Rosario and I'm an artist that works primarily in ceramics. My ceramics are often paired with humor, history, and installation with finished works often ending in large numbers of ceramic objects made to reference, look like, and critique various things from history and art history. For Pinckney Clay I'm creating an assortment of ceramic cakes as a nod to the late Wayne Thiebaud, whose works along with Claes Oldenburg and Elaine Sturtevant, inspired me to create the first work in my series I call the 'Store Projects' (a series of installations where I mimic various conventional store aesthetics, tactics, and objects). While this group of cakes is a departure from the 'Store Projects,' they're still made as a testament to the joy I still find in replicating and appropriating art history that already exists.
