Over the past thirty-five years, Canadian artist Steven Heinemann has transformed ceramics in Canada and achieved international acclaim for his command of the medium. This first major retrospective of the artist’s work, Steven Heinemann: Culture and Nature, examines how he uses textures, pigments, gestures, and images to achieve his wondrously tactile bowls, pods, and other universal forms. The permanency and tranquility of Heinemann’s sculptures defies the way we live now and persuades us to stop, experience, see, feel, and wonder about our place in culture and nature.

The exhibition features more than 70 objects spanning Heinemann’s career since 1979, including new ceramic works and a time-lapse video documenting a treated clay surface as it dries, warps, and cracks.

Heinemann’s process figures prominently in the exhibition. His studio is evoked in the gallery through an installation of sketchbooks and source material, including original photographs and a wall of ceramic test tiles.

About the Artist:
Since completing his MFA at Alfred University in 1983, Steven Heinemann has taught widely in Canada and the United States, exhibiting continuously since his first solo show at the Ontario Crafts Council in 1982.

Heinemann has received numerous national and international awards including the Bavarian State Prize (Germany), the Juror's Award (Mino, Japan), Fletcher Challenge (New Zealand), and in 1996, he was granted the Saidye Bronfman Award, Canada’s highest recognition of achievement in contemporary craft.
