Below are shots of my 3 pieces in the show. They are some of the pieces that I made on my Visiting Artist gig down at Northwestern College last month. The work certainly stands out from other work in the show...for one, its 3d. Additionally its not "pretty landscapes, but image transfers, photo-lithographs, and its a mix of original and appropriated imagery on plywood. While I will be at my reception at the University of Dayton in Ohio on Thursday night, I am curious what the general public has to say about the work...if anything.
My cynical side suspects that those eavesdropping might hear, "Why is that art?", "Why is that photography?", "Why?." Now, if they ask with genuine interest rather than dismissiveness, then the work is partially successful.
