Graduation show at the Anna Leonowens Gallery



Here are a few photos from my graduation show a few weeks ago.  I haven’t graduated yet, but each undergrad in their fourth year gets one show and mine was scheduled early in the semester. There were five paintings in total, two of which were white 8’x 6′ canvases and three that were 5’x 5′.  Each painting is a conglomeration of a series of patterns of chewing gum that have been spit on the sidewalk. The goal of the project was to create a formula which when completed would produce interesting formal compositions without any decision making on the part of the artist. This kind of process is common within the practice of conceptual art, but the fact that I included such seductive, traditionally oriented objects in the show distanced this work from the anti aesthetic sentiments of most conceptual artists.
