Nathan Lynch, associate professor and chair of the ceramics and glass programs at California College of the Arts, gives a talk focusing on Ron Nagle’s work ethic, attention to detail, and unflinching pursuit of his best sculpture, as well as his humor and sense of style.

In Nathan Lynch’s work, concerns for political conflict and environmental upheaval are filtered through notions of absurdity, hand fabrication, and the dramatic devices of storytelling. As a sculptor and performance artist, Lynch has made collaboration and experimentation major components of his practice. His recent projects include The Same Larry at A-B Projects, Doubledrink for Headlands Center for the Arts, and Dead Reckoning for Bay Area Now 7 at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Lynch studied with Ken Price at the University of Southern California and earned an MFA at Mills College with Ron Nagle. He is represented by Rena Bransten Gallery.
