Evidence of Something

Thursday, December 3, 2015

A year ago I wrote about showing a few Constellations at a Newspace Pop-up. I had already been working on the body of work for six months, but it was the first time I had hung them on the wall. I wrote that they were rough drafts. And they were. They were rough drafts for a body of prints that I call Constellations, a body of work that I titled Evidence of Something.

I really want this space to be a place to document my art. My process. They tiny things I'm working on. I love looking back on my thesis year and seeing those ideas develop. It's one of the things that I miss about daily blogging. But because I'm a linear person, I want to talk a little bit about this work before I jump ahead to the things I'm working on now. So, these are a few Constellations from Evidence of Something. This is what I showed at our show Self-Similar in July. It was an amazing culmination to the year I had spent making this work. To see this work on the wall, to see people at the opening, so many people, was so gratifying. Truly any expectations I had were blown out of the water.

If you've been around for long enough, you know that this work is a continuation of my thesis. It's really about memory. It's about constructing a narrative for our lives. About stringing things together and making sense of them. About building a story. Building a life. More on the website. (It's a little hard to see the proportions here because the background is also white, it's much easier on the website so I'd recommend clicking through there.) I also made a little zine that I gave for free at the show, and I still have a few left so if you want one send me your address and I'll mail it to you!

  1. I love this series and seeing the progress. I like that photos can be special just because you think they are and not necessarily because they will get a lot of likes, reblogs, recognition. When people see them they will be convinced of their beauty because you tell them it's so. Just like people. Just like life. I like that.

    I want a lil zine! I will be soon subscribing to your new one, too!
