5th Anniversary Exhibition
boundary 2334 West 111th Place -- Chicago On view: June 18 - July 30, 2022
"I will have a new outdoor installation included in the five-year anniversary exhibition for boundary. Directed by Susannah Papish, her alternative space has provided many fortunate artists with a stellar space. It was a wonderful experience having my solo exhibition there last year. "My contribution titled boundary is an outdoor installation in honor of the five-year anniversary. It depicts the number “5” in sunflower seeds surrounded by stones and wood mulch. Influenced by farming, I accept that nature is often out of one’s control and use the concept of natural intervention as a material in my art. Animals, birds, the wind, and weather will scatter and consume the seed, eventually revealing text listing the artists who have exhibited with boundary since 2017, drawn on the paper substrate. Like boundary, the seed nourishes and provides potential for future growth. "Join us at the opening reception - look at this roster!"
