John Byrd’s New Sculpture

Tampa, Florida based sculptor John Byrd recently completed a year long commission simply named, “Untitled (Bobcat).” This 16x18x13 inch hand-built porcelain piece also features a taxidermy inset, visible from behind the piece. John Byrd is also featured in our next group show, “Detailed Information,” opening on Saturday, May 26 and continuing through July 7, 2012.

You can view more of John Byrd’s extensive portfolio here, and additional gallery samples here. Please contact the gallery for additional information.

Artist John Byrd featured in Oxford American

Fine artist and sculptor John Byrd will be featured in the March issue of Oxford American in an article titled, “100 Under 100: The New Superstars of Southern Art.” We have known since we opened that John Byrd is an inventive perfectionist who posses an innate ability for a sharp eye for detail.

100 Under 100: The New Superstars of Southern Art

Out of overwhelming curiosity, we wanted to discover the most talented and thrilling up-and-coming artists in the South. So we enlisted a range of Southern experts (gallery owners, curators, critics, artists) to help us find them. (Read more here).

38, Tampa, Florida

John Byrd works in the extremely difficult medium of high-fire porcelain—painstakingly carving amalgamated animal forms reminiscent of his North Carolina roots. He studies anatomical drawings to articulate muscular shape, then creates—or scours the Internet for—the perfect taxidermy element to interrupt the high-brow porcelain form. This process is a metaphor for his identity as a Southern artist thrust into the contemporary fine-art world while working with a material often associated with European royalty. He is constantly redefining his Southern cultural identity through his art.
