Derek Weisberg just finished the Gallagher/Perry residency for ceramics in Oakland, CA in July. Weisberg, currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY but returned to the soil which he cut his teeth on for a month to make a beautiful new series of works; both sculptures in the round and wall sculptures. This new work is an investigation and combination of figuration and abstraction, presence and absence, structure and decay, life and death.
