|A growth in the making.|
As a child, I remember my mom having a little spoon collection. Collectables from different travels. These spoons were displayed in a wood display case. What about the empty spaces in the display? Is filling the spaces where an obsession begins?
I imagine a collection of textile and bamboo spoons hanging in an enlarged display case. Should I make 15, 30, 100? Will the process of creating the spoons, and the number needing to be created consume me?
The first spoon is titled growth:
|small organic root clusters, the beginnings of growth|
|a natural progression|
Here is a sneak peak at Colony, when it was a work in progress:
Check out the exhibit in person or online to see the finished Colony. I am excited to attend the opening next week and see the spoons on display and the artists that are able to attend the opening. One of the other artists, Sean Whalley's work looks like it may fit with my theme of "Obsessions and Collections."
Where do you draw the line between an obsession and a collection?
