Objects from the Shop

Feb 25, 2020 - April 25, 2020

Reception April 23, 2020 6:00pm-8:00pm

After the death of my grandfather, I became aware of an internal conversation about the space in which he worked and lived. An entire workshop, containing tools and unfinished projects, was left without a purpose. This emptiness draws me to the deserted shop, where I find the act of creating from his workspace and materials grants me the freedom to talk about our relationship. My practice enables me to memorialize items that played integral roles in his day-to-day upkeep of the homestead. The repetitious process of printmaking provides an outlook on labor, which is acknowledged through both the printing and created objects. The resulting images range from being highly representational to abstract.

Reusing my grandfather’s belongings connects me with a person with whom I can no longer have a dialogue. All of the work I do is in response to these belongings that would otherwise been discarded. It is my duty as the grandson, and the artist, to resume where my grandfather left off.
