Constantly experimenting and expanding his artistry Tony Laverick works intuitively. Similar to a dance Laverick surrenders to the moment allowing his hands and eyes take turn in taking the lead. Feeling a deep connection to abstract painters Tony has delved into creating dramatic three-dimensional works of art with a distinctly tactile quality. Creating intricate compositions of colors, shapes and textures his work is characterized by the juxtaposition of controlled, linear designs with unrestrained, turbulent areas. Much like a painter Tony has developed methods of creating unique textures and glazes, often layering them together to create a fascinating sense of depth.
“Tony Laverick’s work wakes the collector within me. Never before have I seen such perfectly pure shapes covered in elaborate, unique and exciting glazes like these. When you touch and examine the pieces of an accomplished artist, you can feel the quality behind their work.”
