Artist Talk: Saturday, Dec 1, 2018 • 6-10pm • Talk at 7pm
Picturing Silence is a show about the interstitial practice I found myself engaged in after I stopped making electronic music/sound art and began exploring visual art from a fresh perspective. The centerpiece of the show consists of a collection of large photogaphs of the sides of picture frames, photographs that represent my own Cagein experience of silence that occured while I was working as a visitor service representative at the Knoxville Museum of Art in Knoxville, TN. The paintings represent my own exploration of sound related themes that carry over into painting. The single sound piece in the show, 8-track sinfonia, is comprised of several hours of music by J.S. Bach slowed down and represented in ambient musical form, a sound project I engaged in while pursuing my reinvigorated visual art practice.
