I started doing installations in 2008. So the show demonstrates an increased interest in the use of multiple materials and installation as a medium. The shift materially was brought on by a need to consider how I could use my materials as devices to expand the dialog of the work. Installation can be very demanding physically. So hanging this show was quite an intense experience.
Is art in a state of perpetual motion?
I am not sure if I think it is that as much as I believe it needs to reflect that. As long as life or living continues to be dynamic then it is inevitable that art will continue to change with it.
