April 22, 2017 to April 23, 2017
Artist Foon Sham's focus is on wood in its many forms. Using small bits, he creates large scale vessels which take on shapes like tornados or mountains, baskets, or even a giant vase-like piece which viewers can sit inside. His smaller works echo these larger structures, exploring the intersection of natural vs. manmade, permanence vs. instability, geometric vs. organic.
Foon is a professor at University of Maryland, and exhibits nationally and internationally.
Foon's workshop will highlight some techniques for creating his wood pieces.
The lecture will focus on his international background and experience and his body of work in wood and other media.
