To Catch A Glimpse of Things
MetadataShow full item record
My exhibition To Catch a Glimpse of Things is an exploration into concretizing and prolonging temporary, ephemeral gestures. Through the repetition of ambiguous forms as well as the recurring imagery of distorted, amorphous figures, an attempt is made to reconstruct the complex and fragmentary phenomenon of perception and the way meaning is created retrospectively through the extraction and arrangement of disparate moments and details from lived experience. Employing the mediums of painting, drawing and sculpture, the exhibition presents a body of work in which the process of reproducing, abstracting, and translating distorted images into other variations mirrors the universal activity of the meaning-making mind, a mind which analyzes, prioritizes, erases, or substitutes aspects of experience as a means of negotiating a fluid world.
