Artist Talk with Addison Karl, 26 April 3pm-4pm

Bronze sculpture by Addison Karl

Join us for a special Artist Talk with multi award-winning Native American sculptor Addison Karl. Hear about his fascinating artistic and geographical journey from his birthplace in Denver, Colorado to his current activities in Venice, Italy.

Addison Karl is deeply connected to his Chickasaw and Choctaw heritage. His intricate sculptures are the result of meticulous research and cross-disciplinary approaches to materials, themes, and techniques. His bronze work features innovative patinas, transforming the appearance of the metal to evoke turquoise gemstones. This speaks to the cultural importance of turquoise in Indigenous art and a personal connection of growing up in Arizona.

Since moving to Europe Karl has immersed himself in the art of glass casting under the tutelage of Murano glass maestro Giorgio Giuman. Venetian glass trade beads played a central role in historical relations between Indigenous people and European settlers and this history is explored in Addison Karl’s exquisite sculptures.

Rainmaker Gallery is delighted to welcome Addison Karl to Bristol.
