Today, I spent some time enjoying this site that a fellow art student, Rachel Machovec (below), introduced to me in the early fall. As part of her practice, Rachel invites others to spin yarn with her in this field as well as engage in conversation. I have been considering installing a piece here that wouldContinue reading “Field Work: Boulder”
Tonight I am finishing up the installation of my X’s and O’s project on the Wallspaper Exhibit at CU. This was a juried opportunity offered for undergraduate and graduate students in the Sculpture & Post- Studio Practice Area. My work will remain up for the entirety of the semester. The intent is that each semester, a new “bill” or photograph will be pasted on top of the previous work.
This was the exhibition for the X’s and O’s project (described in the previous post). In the installation of the work, I emphasized the idea of play and competition as well as the process of transformation from independence to interdependence. In the process of trying to make a pumpkin pie for my husband, I almost cut my finger off. In a effort ot embrace some traditional gender roles, I often find myself fumbling.
This was a series of posters I did with a bit of humor reflecting on the tensions of the domestic life, engaging in traditional gender roles, independence vs. interdependence. The image used here was from the hospital after accidentally blending my finger while making a pumpkin pie. My husband and I wear this head band when we do “hard” things around the house. These images were selected for a juried competition called “Wallspaper” to be on display for a semester in the art department of the University of Colorado.
