"Concern for a Body of Work"
Concern for a Body of Work is a gallery residency that occurred over a period of 3 weeks in Xchanges Gallery.
I worked from a large scattering of art pieces, ceramics, prints, notes, and collections of found objects towards a single installation as an attempt to create one coherent picture, one statement, of my body's experience, of this, my body of work.
The body in clay objects and on slips of paper. hands, hearts, guts, shapes and skins, the insides and outsides, are brought together here.
Four same poses, attitudes, of a body, are expressed in a set of fired clay figures and a suite iterations of shaped monoprints.
The residency covers different phases; a time of accumulation, of taking stock, a period of grouping, arranging, and construction into sentences, pararaphs, conversations.
