Reid Flock and David Thai: Neo-Modernism


 
 

Two artists working with silica-based
materials – one clay (Reid Flock), the other glass (David Thai).  Both
artists are pushing the boundaries of the media making it lighter and
thinner while working with highly demanding surface treatments.  This
exhibition explores the similarities of contemporary design aesthetics
arising from advanced production methods, while contrasting the
characteristic of these two related silica materials.  Flock (Hamilton,
Ontario) brings his experience of working in Hitachi, Japan to his
designs, while Thai (Toronto, Ontario) has made a name for himself in
Canada.
