2 Ceramics Shows: Joakim Ojanen & Max Maslansky
by Jody Zellen
Stockholm-based artist Joakim Ojanen's delightful exhibition of paintings, drawings, and ceramics at Richard Heller Gallery is aptly titled: "A Show for the Lonely Distant Baby Souls." According to the artist, it is "a celebration of the human being." He goes on to say, "Let the stupid feelings take over. Get mad, get angry, get drunk, get happy, get sad! Find a friend, give them your heart, smoke a cigarette, look up in the blue sky, suck a flower, enjoy the day but also cry. Please don't forget to cry. There's many of us, we can make miracles together, beautiful things! But most of the time it's hard to understand each other, that's OK but just please be nice."
