If My Grandmother Had Wheels She'd Be A Trolley Car: The Accumulation of Objects, Encounters and The Passage of Time
Date of Award
Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Visual Art
The house is the structure. Within the house are rooms, spaces, hallways and corners. In those live the objects.The objects live on surfaces, surfaces that much like the previous layers, are made up of many things, most certainly not one thing. A static object may hold a series of other objects, spaces and events. A static object may also embody the passage of time.Though one may try to hold the object at a constant, that is to slow or even bring a halt to its motion, this task is near impossible.
Bird Box House, Bear Box Dresser, Lamp Hat, Macaroni Light Tears, Dresser, Ginger Ale Bottle, Wine Bottle, Beer Bottle, Medicine Bottle, Bagel
These objects are anything but singular. They hold many things at once. They are superpositions of everyday objects.
My accumulating marks attempt to take a physical account for this motion, the passage of time. When the object begins to grow hair, fur or feathers, in the moment of the drawing, the painting, the bird box, the object, time stands still…bearly.
