Durham Arts Council in Durham, NC, Features Works by Perry Whitted
High Relief Landscapes is the title of a ceramics exhibit by Durham artist Perry Whitted that will hang in the Allenton Gallery of the Durham Arts Council Building in Durham, NC, through June 7.
The abstracted monotoned ceramic works are heavily influenced by nature. They are uniquely sophisticated interpretations of natural landscapes. Designed for wall display, these high relief pieces break through the traditional two-dimensional surface to create sculptural three-dimensional shapes. As in nature, changes in viewing position or lighting proportionately change the shadows and highlights in subtle ways.
Whitted produces clay and metal work in his Durham studios. He particularly enjoys living in a community favored for its intellectual and artistic culture. Formally trained at Auburn University in Visual Design, he has worked as Graphic Designer, Scientific Illustrator and Media Department Manager.
