“Accidental Monster” Profile, 17.5 x 22.25 in., collage on panel, 2016

Recently this was included in a show “Unity Through States of Being” at Modified Arts Gallery. The opening coincided with Art Detour and then the First Friday for April 2017 was reviewed by Margaret Swafford of The Arts Beacon. This notice my piece “Accidental Monster” received was really encouraging and reminds me of the various ways art takes on a life of its own. This makes me happy to see, hear and read the effect of people interacting with this work. From Umberto Eco to Jackson Pollack — but especially Roland Barthes speaks of how a created work must forge on with its own life and path. A created work exists to be interpreted and enjoyed while acting as a mirror to the world around it. Affected by the viewer’s personal frame of mind, the era it exists in and to some extent, the political climate surrounding its current location.

The objects gathered here have significance to each other, loosely based on the themes running through this series. An interesting note about the depicted femur can be read here in this blog “A Seekers Thoughts”. While the rib is full of references I will let you have some fun thinking about that pairing.  I first read about the Frustum here in Seth Godin’s blog and thought about how this applies to everything from politics to the arts.
