The artists selected for “Reconfigure” demonstrate a broad range of interpretations of the human form in both two and three dimensions. Approaches to this subject matter include a range from realistic, stylized, abstract to anthropomorphized forms. Pavel Amromin, Tammy Marinuzzi and Magda Gluszek are all instructors in the Division of Visual and Performing Arts at
. They each hold Masters of Fine Arts degrees in Ceramics from the Gulf Coast Community College . Pavel Amromin creates narrative porcelain vignettes examining issues of war and the boy soldier. He uses a combination of press-mold and sculpting methods. Tammy Marinuzzi makes functional forms illustrating her observations of the various people and personalities that she encounters in daily life. She constructs her forms with soft slabs and decorates with a combination of colorful slips and glazes. Magda Gluszek sculpts female figures investigating ideas about identity and appearance through performative poses. She sculpts her forms as a solid mass and hollows them before firing and decorating with ceramic and mixed media surfaces. Amromin, Marinuzzi and Gluszek will demonstrate their individual techniques and talk about what motivates and inspires them to create. University of Florida
