Greg Payce is an internationally recognized ceramic artist, well-versed in historic styles of pottery and plays with this in his new work. The exhibition SPUN consists of groupings of vases placed so that the spaces between the vases become images – based on the well known face/vase illusion – where the space between the faces becomes a chalice, and the space between the back of the heads becomes another vase.
GREG PAYCE was born (1956) and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. He attained a BFA from the University of Alberta in 1977 with a minor in anthropology and completed an MFA at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax (now NSCAD University) in 1987. Since 1988, he has been teaching at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary.
