Opening Reception: September 8, 6 - 10pm
From the artist:
Object Narratives is an installation of paintings and constructions arranged to be in visual conversation with each other. Created without consideration of the other, each work is meant to stand on it’s own but as a group they exist in harmony and discord through color, form and material.
The constructions are made of humble materials with many of the pieces found on daily walks. With intentional simplicity they are patched together creating situations where ordinary or commonplace objects become surprising and unexpected.
As with all of my artistic practice, conceptually this work is a commentary on the absurdity of reality, the fragility of existence and the persistent hum of the mundane.
