Somewhere between endurance and indulgence. In the Fall of 2018, an engagement with psychological struggle and a playful dialog within a Community Center: clay sculpture and the permission to curate, mount and draw on the walls. This balance can be kept artfully can also slip into carelessness. Notice the difference in these pieces. Where does pain go? The different kinds, physical hurts, the loss of loved ones, or maybe some combination the physical and psychological. Informing biography, behavior, identity is that where pain goes into disease or art?
Thanks especially to Charles Wooldridge for the countless ways he helped make this show happen at the Bay City Arts Center.
