Everything in our world can be broken down to its base elements. The five senses are the elements for interpreting and translating our experiences into information, memory, and emotion. Our ideologies and theologies can be traced back to our human needs, desires, and aspirations. However, it is the human identity of the artists that takes these basic elements and transforms them into objects that define our requirements to live and our passions to exist.
The artist’s relationship with their material has always been at the foundations of the creative process. Rooted in discovery, the ongoing challenge rests in harnessing the inherent visual properties of a material by using its unique aesthetic language in their art. These richly diverse emotional, spiritual and intellectual concepts are manifested by developing the essential characteristics of the materials within the artwork. As we delve into the concepts and beliefs of the artist through experiencing their artwork, it can open new doors in exploring avenues of awareness, expression and the discovery of ourselves.
Participating artists include:
Catherine Bell Smith
The exhibition is co-curated by Casey Bradley, Studio Manager and Instructor of Dimensional Studies, Columbus College of Art and Design.
