Collection Focus: Sergei Isupov—a mid-career retrospective for an innovative artist who has pushed the possibilities of clay. Interested in exploring the dynamics of human relationships, Isupov (born in Stravapol, Russia, 1963) has found a distinctive artistic voice that combines two-dimensional narrative with three-dimensional ceramic form. Imbuing his work with social, cultural, and personal history, Isupov investigates the dynamics of the human condition through complex and compelling compositions. In his pieces, figures in all states of dress or undress—often in isolated or abstracted landscapes—morph and shift as animals become part human or vice-versa.
