“But woman’s allegedly definitive tendency to put the inside on the outside could provoke quite another reaction.” The Gender of Sound, Anne Carson
“Colors appear connected predominantly in space. Therefor, as constellations they can be seen in any direction and at any speed. And as they remain, we can return to them repeatedly and in many ways.” Interaction of Color, Josef Albers
In, Occupations, tests I am compiling methods and remenants from various jobs and art exhibitions I have had in the past two years. Materials are left exposed. Process available. Simple discarded moments make up the sourcing of material. Tableaus put together, forced into simple structures. The colors considered—they are part of our vision. Color, how we grasp onto sight, allowed with variations of light allowed in.
