Bouke de Vries: War & Pieces

Thru December 31

London-based Dutch artist Bouke de Vries’ War & Pieces has been described as a masterwork by art critics. The monumental artwork, crafted from thousands of fragments of porcelain, reimagines the decorative centerpieces that adorned seventeenth-and eighteenth-century banquet tables. A former conservator of ceramics, Bouke de Vries uses broken ceramics as the primary medium for his artwork, celebrating the “beauty of destruction” through his fragmentary sculptures. The exhibition is supported by the St. Johns County Tourism Development Council.
