Anything meant to be realized will eventually find it’s way.
Abstract landscapes, symbolized by a horizon line, make their way into this neckpiece 38 times. Consider the repetition to be possibilities, visions in your mind’s eye of places yet to go or places that have been seen. Thirty-eight places to escape to… Perhaps, a Choose Your Own Adventure with many different endings. String Theory? They could be choices along the same timeline. Or, windows into your past lives or future dreams. That’s a lot for one statement neckpiece to communicate, alas that’s what It Is.
This piece was realized as a donation for a Surel’s Place Artist Residency Program. As the first resident at Surel’s Place, I know first-hand the opportunity that awaits artists to come. Magic happens there when you have time to think and opportunity to explore your never-ending curiosities in art.
Sketch from August 2010, on the back of a receipt! "It" ...will eventually find it's way.
