microWave project
Artist: Damian Yanessa
The tactile qualities of the ceramic form within this sculpture are created through a technique called “pinching.” As a result, the wall is not only incredibly thin, but also shows the mark of the hand— frozen in the surface through hundreds of tiny fingerprints. The reflection then completes the piece, absorbing the solid shape; depicting how physical objects can transcend the physical realm.

Damian is a Sculptor and Installation Artist in the Northern Virginia Area that has been working professionally for over ten years. He moved to the Washington area in 2008 in order to pursue education and exhibiting opportunities on the east coast, while continuing to build his portfolio. He currently works out of his house where he has his studio, is an Adjunct Professor of Art at the George Washington University, and is involved in other studio programs and arts organizations in the area as well.
