In his curatorial statement Reinking explains, "Color is an inherent part of any creative artistic process. It can affect spatial relationships, mood, form, social constructs, psychology, etc. Within the 3-dimensional form, especially ceramics, both sculptural and functional, color is not discussed as much as form. The artists selected for this exhibition emulate the wide range of color of clay, from the intense to the sublime. "Chroma Terra" is an exploration of color theory and relationships within the ceramic form.
John Reinking is an Associate Adjunct Professor at Raritan Valley Community College and County College of Morris and teaching artist and Ceramics Program Manager at The Center for Contemporary Art in Bedminster, NJ. As a ceramic artist his work can be found in many private collections. He is represented by Peters Valley Craft Center and Connexions Gallery in Easton, PA and he exhibits in national group shows regularly.
