Paper Jam! Show Opening This Friday!
My House Gallery invites you to attended its opening of PAPER JAM on Friday, September 19th from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.
The 8 1/2 by 11 inch piece of paper has become a fixture in our
contemporary culture. This standard image confronts us every day.Containing advertisement, files, faxes, business contracts, photocopies, and a myriad of information, we take in the information, oftenover looking the spatial context within which it is contained. What ifour standard paper size was drastically different? What if it was halfof or doubled in size? How would this change our perception andunderstanding of information? Paper Jam puts the 8 1/2 by 11 piece ofpaper under the hand of the artist to allow them to expand or contracttheir artistic understanding of the parameters of space presented.
PAPER JAM features:
Bonnie Brenda Scott
John Oliver Lewis
Heather Smith Jones
I hope you can all make it out to this great opening! Visits by appointment.
I'm a fiber artist and enthusiast stumbling through life outside of art school. My work explores the link between fibers history and contemporary politics, especially gender politics. I started this blog to keep myself in a critical discipline, and to keep myself actively writing about my work and the world around me. Thanks for reading!
