Graham Marks’s ambiguous ceramic work triggers associations with familiar forms: squishy cerebral folds or the hard, ragged interior of a nut. In 1980, Marks came to Rochester to teach a semester at Rochester Institute of Technology and this piece was awarded the purchase prize at the Gallery’s Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition. The same year he was featured in the national Ceramics Monthly and was quoted as saying, “Clay is a material that is engaging to me because of its resistance to the imposition of monologue and its insistence on dialogue. I inform it as much as it informs me.”
