Artist's Exhibition Statement
A “pivot” as a noun is “the central point, pin, or shaft on which a mechanism turns or oscillates.”
These works are the product of, but not necessarily defined by, the circumstances in which we found ourselves as a global community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although I had no desire for the body of work to focus on the pandemic specifically, its impact was unavoidable.
However, the collection represents an exploration of exploration. The processes are just as important as the pieces themselves.
My previous works consisted primarily of sculptural assemblages. In the last two years, I was challenged to continue the making of objects during a time of limited space due to social distancing mandates and calls to stay indoors during the early days of the pandemic. As a result, I created a series of works on plexiglass, photo transfer, and video as well as smaller assemblages. The content varies, as the theme of the series is centered more on activity and experimentation.
As a human race, we have all pivoted in some way. I see this body of work as a resolution of sorts, as I became the pivot.
