Melissa Rivenbark: Excavations on Hirta – Obsolete Display
|Category: Art Exhibits|
|This event has been verified by the Arizona Daily Star.|
I am currently working on a series in which ambiguous environments materialize from a variety of media. I use fabrics and thread for the first layer and then alternate between painting, drawing and more sewing. These landscapes are created as a way of organizing information. The mind will manipulate all input to fit into the psychological models it has created.
All experience is a muddle, until we make a model to explain it. The model can clarify the muddles, but the model is never the muddle itself. - Robert Anton Wilson
Mixed media is the most honest way for me to record data. Drawing and sewing manifest mechanical marks. Paint, on the other hand, introduces a sculptural element to the work through a combination of layering and staining. Research and reflective writing help me to define each piece. Ultimately, my goal is to create a venue for discourse.
Displayed in the Joel D. Valdez Main Library Gallery June 1-30, 2017, during regular library hours.
