The Boiler Room at Heath Ceramics is pleased to present the work of Oakland, CA-based rising artist Brendan Monroe in Morphology, his largest solo show and his first major exhibition in San Francisco. The show was on view from September 25 to October 25, 2015.

Brendan is a sculptor, painter, and muralist who’s known for work that’s playfully conceptual—investigating dreamlike, intimate, and imagined worlds that evoke the tension between reality and surreality.

Featuring a selection of entirely new work—including paintings, drawings, and sculptures—Morphology brings to life Brendan’s world at scale and with an intensity befitting a space as dramatic and atmospheric as the Boiler Room.  



Morphology Opening Reception


It looked like a risky move at first, pairing talented artist Brendan Monroe, best known for his hypnotic, science inspired illustrations and sculptures with Heath, best known for its crisp modern style.  In Blobography, curated by Adam Silverman, Brendan collaborated with the LA Heath Clay Studio to create sculptures that brought his world to life. Exploring new mold making and sculpting techniques, along with experimentations with glazes, the show brought to life Brendan’s world in a brand new way.  The show held at Heath Los Angeles in Fall 2014 featured the fruits of the collaboration, sculptures, illustrations and more.
