LARS CALMAR

Lars Calmar is a storyteller – with a twist of weirdness. His ceramic sculptures appear as stories and portraits from the physical and bodily universe. In the work with the ceramic he gives the sculptures a raw and crackled surface, and his work gets life and dimensions of time, character and history. The sculptures are a bit grotesque and points quietly at the inevitable and naked of human life, and contain a peculiar and remarkable mix of scathing humour and seriousness.
