STATEMENT OF WORK

Why the blind man still runs

 

 

 

Mostly driven by curiosity and wondering, trying to understand how specific objects and ideas function. My interests are focused on logic and perception. One, is used to challenge the other, and furthermore our own understand and reasoning for any given premise.

 

There are three main bodies of work that reflect these inquiries: 

1. A death of visual taste ( -2014- )

2. On practical abstraction (2015- )

3. Three is an even number (and other logical conclusions) (2014- )

 

The first concept, “a death of visual taste”, began from a need to challenge vision and visual-aesthetic in a dominant visual art. Thinking about painting and its reliance on the eyes led me to banish it and paint through the reception of other senses. 

The second inquiry “on practical abstraction”, is about the art object, and its practical function and purpose. Eventually, I discovered that the camera is actually a time-machine.

The third, “three is an even number…”, concerns logic and value; it comprises of new and used lottery tickets set in handmade frames, a magical dollar bill, and a receipt of travel. 

While I have created a means of organization, this is not to say each object stands completely alone from any other object, or painting, film, picture, or word. Each new creation continues a lineage from past to future.
