Kristin Sollenberger at Craftland; and Flynn Grinnan (Providence Phoenix, 11/01/12)
In April, Providence sculptor Flynn Grinnan presented “Body Presence,” a series of ceramic sculptures cast by draping ribbed clay over people. But his method often wasn’t apparent in his final bent and folded clay forms. They looked more like fragments or castoffs.
He’s back at Yellow Peril with “Fabric Flesh,” at the gallery’s satellite space (60 Valley St, #102, Providence, through November 4). In these dozen sculptures, Grinnan’s technique is much more apparent — to better effect.
