On Carson Mesa is the title of British artist Andrew Lord’s second solo exhibition at Galerie Eva Presenhuber in Zürich. Andrew Lord presents three new works made from multiple ceramic sculptures: Snow Falling, At Sunset, and By Starlight. The artist made the artworks during the last months of 2013 in New Mexico, USA. In these works, Andrew Lord uses the shapes of French Post-Impressionist artist Paul Gauguin as a vehicle to describe light, in this case the light conditions Lord observes on Carson Mesa, a vast wild plain in northern New Mexico. In this video, Andrew Lord talks about the works on display, his artistic influences, the role auf Gaugin in his work, how he discovered ceramics as artistic material, and future projects.
