So there I sat in my studio…frustrated with the current state of affairs like many others in this great country. The 5th and the 4th estates are at odds – “FAKE NEWS!!!” abounds with no end in sight. Is the twitter conversation I’m having with a real person or a bot? Is the story I’m reading on Facebook fiction, fact, or some crazy mixture? I start contemplating how a tool that was originally designed to keep the populous somewhat informed was hell-bent on dismantling itself…and I look down at an old reference book I bought ages ago.
You know the type of book, delightedly outdated, smells of the library stacks it originated from when you crack it open, 1940’s instruction manual on how to make tools. Now this is a seriously useful book – if society collapsed and I somehow made it through; I would have clear instructions on how to make all sorts of tools. But I knew this book was really meant to serve a higher purpose.
This book was made to be destroyed by me. I started redacting every letter A from the book. After a couple pages of dots, I realized this wasn’t enough. I needed to add pattern in…something that implies great meaning; while in reality, the pattern applied was what I found aesthetically pleasing. Pages and pages of constellation building ensued and continues to this day. This was the start of the tiny seed of an idea of a series I would lovingly name, “Redaction In A Minor.”
True to my process which always starts with prototyping and letting my brain free associate; these pages started reminding me a bit of patterns on a blouse or scarf. And this is when it all clicked together. I’ve been playing with the idea of creating a series of paintings that can be mixed and mingled together, that have no up or down, and any orientation you prefer is just fine. I selected one sheet that only had the “A” redaction, and created a repeat pattern that would use the same block of text, redaction, and pattern over and over and over again. The result is what you see here today.
So in the end, thank you “Fake News.” I wouldn’t have created “Redaction In A Minor” without you.
