Vineet Kacker

Born 1965, India, Vineet graduated as an architect from the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi, in 1989. After being introduced to clay at the Andretta Pottery in the state of Himachal, he honed his skills at the Golden Bridge Pottery in Pondicherry, alongside assisting his teacher Ray Meeker on his architectural Fired-Earth housing projects.

 

While the time worn textures and iconographic markings on the surfaces of Vineets sculptures appear to reference established traditions and myths, the artist likes his work to walk a line between the meditative and the playful, exploring their inter-changeability. Vineet sees himself sampling and remixing old texts, icons and imagery that he has grown up with into new works that are accessible without being populist, and symbolic without being derivative. He views his works as visual clues to mark inner landscapes that perpetuate a dialogue between the sacred and the profane, the timeless and the contemporary, the eastern and the western.

 

Vineet has done artist-in-residence programs at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado, and the Northern Clay Center, Minnesota, U.S.A., as well as a post-experience program the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff, U.K. He has apprenticed with master ceramists Alan Caiger-Smith and Sandy Brown. He is the recipient of several awards, notably the Charles Wallace Fellowship and the Fulbright grant. His work has been exhibited widely, and is a part of several collections notably the Museum of Contemporary Ceramics at Icheon, Korea, and the Indian Ceramics Museum at FLICAM, Fuping, China.
