The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present new work by Lisa Holt and Harlan Reano.
Holt and Reano are a creative couple, working together similar to pottery greats like Edwin and Mary Scheier or Maria and Julian Martinez. Holt and Reano use traditional Cochiti ceramic techniques to create forms and surface designs inspired by their own imaginations, historical Pueblo pottery, and artistic styles from across the globe. Their approach is an interesting reversal of the way many Modernist artists created artwork using their traditional European techniques paired with inspiration from the artwork of indigenous Americans. It is important to Holt and Reano that they add their own twist to Pueblo pottery to ensure the tradition keeps moving forward and to encourage younger generations to do the same, and this personal expression is clear in all of their work.
