Congratulations to Touchstone Gallery’s artist Bill Mould and his solo show “Spirit and Enigma” for being named one of Washington’s best art gallery shows of 2012 by “The Washington Post.”
Exhibited at Touchstone Gallery April 4-29
This Washington ceramicist neatly balanced modern technique and classical themes. He shaped clay in unusually thin layers, so it was easily accepted as being fabric, parchment or other foldable substances, and inscribed it with text from ancient, sometimes undeciphered languages. The works ranged from the ominous — a series of six inquisitors, including the infamous Torquemada — to the playful, evoking the lost words and vanished lives that underlie contemporary existence.
