Subjective Objects, a solo show from Contoocook artist Boyan Moskov, will be on view in New Hampton School’s Galletly Gallery from November 1 through December 15, 2021. (The gallery will be closed November 22- 29 for Thanksgiving Recess.) The public is cordially invited to a reception for the artist on Friday, November 5, from 5:30 – 7:00 pm.
A Look Inside the Art
Taking inspiration from the organic textures of the natural world as well as the elegant minimalism of Japanese, Korean, and Swedish ceramics, Subjective Objects presents a range of forms that showcase Moskov’s skill on the wheel, fearless approach to surface design, and masterful control of the glazing process.
Born in Ruse, Bulgaria, Moskov was drawn to art from an early age. As a teenager in the late 80’s, he began studying at the Troyan Art School, where he developed a passion for painting, drawing, sculpture, and ceramics. Through ceramics, he found the perfect outlet to intersect his interests in these various mediums. Moskov went on to work as a production potter and continue his studies at the Sofia Art Academy. He also spent three formative years training in Sweden before returning to Bulgaria to open his own pottery business.
After several successful years running his business, Moskov moved to the United States with his wife, a New Hampshire native, and settled in Contoocook. His focus began to shift away from functional production pottery to one-of-a-kind fine art ceramics that allowed him to better enjoy the creative process and make pieces that felt more personal and authentic. The result of this shift has led to an incredibly diverse body of work that has grown and evolved in countless ways over the past decade. Subjective Objects is an exciting look at Moskov’s latest forms and his unique aesthetic.
