A ‘threshold’ is a temporary place in which a person merely passes through. It is an place in between places. A transition. Ephemeral. This word signifies a transient or fading quality in our work, in our subject matter and as we transition out from being students.
Threshold just ended on Friday. The curatorial committee did an excellent job hanging the work and bringing together five very different artist’s work in a way that complimented every piece. It has been a huge pleasure to spend this past year working with these artists and watching their work take form, develop, and distill. Congratulations Ann Connelly, Joanne Hewko, Judy Reed and Nicola Rendell on creating and bringing together such moving work and also for graduating! I look forward to see where art will lead you next!
This photo is of a piece I made for Threshold called Whaling. For this work I “whaled” all the whale-words from a copy of Melville’s Moby Dick, catalogued them into different species and separated them into bottles. For more photos this exhibition click here.
