Arist Talk with Camille VandenBerge Friday, April 17,
7 - 8:30 PM
Peter VandenBerge’s work spans four decades of ceramic history, beginning with Robert Arneson’s first ceramic class at UC Davis. VandenBerge has developed a distinctly gestural style of figurative work that largely centers on stylized portraits of men and women, carrying upon their heads a string of personal objects. Lately those belongings have shifted to include elephants, tigers, and other endangered animals. Camille VandenBerge, a sculptor raised in her father’s studio, conveys a sense of the mystical in her female figures, who also serve to protect various creatures, real and imagined.
