“Who hasn’t ––sometime––wanted to escape? But from what? To where? And once we have arrived at the good place, is this the end of the desire to move? Or does it stir again, tempted by another image, even if it be that of the the place from which we started ––our old home or childhood? Surely everyone has had the urge to be elsewhere in moments of stress and uncertainty.”
Juxtaposing natural and homely forms such as painted sticks, colorful cord, dyed and painted fabrics with the utilitarian design of a Bronco SUV (and all the temptation to escape it represents), my installation within the Bronco Gallery is a visual conversation between the function-oriented framework of the vehicle and the intuitive, provisional, and organic structures within.
