The Jason Jacques Gallery sails forward into the the future with ceramic sculpture by Danish artist Michael Geertsen

The Jason Jacques Gallery continues it's journey into the world of contemporary art with Danish ceramic art star Michael Geertsen. A virtuoso of the art of manipulating clay, Michael produces dynamic wall sculptures and exciting free standing ceramic lifeforms glazed in bold primary colors. He joins the gallery as an internationally acclaimed veteran in the art world with an established reputation and impressive museum resume. All of this at the young age of 45 he has a long career ahead of him and will surely go down in history as one of the giants of his generation. We look forward to being his gallery and expect a blockbuster first show which will include works from the last ten years in addition to the body of work he is building now ensured to wow the art world once again, firmly stamping his mark as one of the contemporary greats.
