Kevin Cieplensky is a ceramic artist and instructor who currently maintains his practice in the Boston metro area. He received a BFA in ceramics from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 2015, and has since completed a year of post-baccalaureate studies, as well as a year-long residency at the Saratoga Clay Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY. His work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions, and can be found in multiple private collections.
The natural world offers a variety of exemplary patterns and structures that express the elemental forms, components and themes that shape our experience. Ranging from microscopic building blocks like atoms, cells and molecular geometries, to the complex and infinite web of larger systems like weather patterns and galactic clusters, objects in nature conform to a strict set of formal parameters, simultaneously demonstrating elemental themes of chaos and order. My work reflects an exploration of these strict yet varied forms through a simplified geometric lens, heavily rooted in mathematics, physics and logic. By providing a visual translation of universal schema, my work offers insight to the attributes which characterize the human experience.
