Exhibition Runs: October 9th to 15th, 2012
On the UAS Barewalls
These works are not an academic exploration of the word obsession, but a physical manifestation of the process of preoccupation-- Of making objects and making art through a consuming act. This consumptive act is a way to communicate a mental state of preoccupation that perhaps is otherwise unable to be communicated. Perhaps one that we all share. Showcased in this exhibition are paintings, sculptures and drawings based on obsession, focusing on process based work. (IE: Objects where process is evident or requires time-consuming tasks). All works are completed by artists with developmental disabilities and communicate each individual’s state of preoccupation with the same repetitive task.
