For more than 40 years, artist David Furman has created diverse works in clay that express his ideas, experiences, and perceptions through irony, empathy, and humor. His repertoire is vast: miniature room vignettes and smallscale "contemporary ruins" and trompe l'oeil works imitating ceramic tools, paintbrush-filled coffee cans, tea cups with floating pencils and erasers, and chalkboards and bulletin boards. Furman's more recent work is focused on composite-vegetable teapots and wooden-mannequin based scenarios that portray human emotion.
David Furman: The Artist is in the Details will be accompanied by a full-color catalog documenting the works of David Furman, complete with essays by Kirsten Ellsworth, Elaine Levin, Mary MacNaughton, and a forward by David Armstrong. This publication is funded in-part by the Pasadena Art Alliance.
