Johannes Nagel is an artist committed to exploring the many ways of producing a vessel. Ranging in size from the tabletop to the monumental, his work deconstructs the historic and contemporary meanings of the term “vase,” informed by 20th-century art, criticism, and theory. Not only does he apply painterly swaths of color to his vases, he signs them in prominent and visible places, deliberately discarding pottery’s tradition of discreet stamps and maker’s marks. Rather than closing onto themselves, Nagel’s vessels appear at times to be sliced and cut open at their extremities. In the case of these containers full of holes, the interior competes with and complements the exterior; together they resist the very idea of “containing."
