> DESCRIPTION

Richard Shaw's ceramic trompe l'oeil exhibition is a continuum of themes that he has explored for years: the personal remnants that individuals leave behind and their universal  stories.

These still life porcelain tableaus consist of everyday objects arranged in compositions that  extend our illusion of reality and raise an awareness of the beauty and value in the mundane.

Characteristic of all of Shaw's work is a technical expertise in the use of cast porcelain that goes beyond  mere realism. His intricately crafted pieces are both humorous and intellectual  in its art historical dialogue with some of the patterns found in 18th century Chinese export  ceramic ware. Shaw has been a leading  figure in redefining contemporary trompe l'oeil ceramics in the United States and beyond.
