Making art for me is like writing a story out of images and objects. My piece “Emaciating Grace” is a good example of this visual story telling.
Words add even more dimension for me, so here’s what I’ve written to go along with this piece.
“Grace is a name for a girl. It’s also a thought that can change the world.”
Grace starves when all that feeds it/her is a language of fear. In this piece, spoons — implements for transporting nutrients, carry only words of danger and death. Arranging the spoons in the shape of a ribcage acts to reinforce the idea that these words do not sustain life but in fact starve it. The solders surrounding the piece suggest a fence erected to restrain grace.
