Flash Point: Artist Statement

The exhibit series Flash Point is conceived around the idea of physical,  social, psychological and economic boundaries.  The “art world”  reflects in some interesting ways boundaries that suffuse our larger social order.  

Some of the boundaries targeted are museum admission cost, the general public’s unease with visiting galleries, university, gallery and museum systems criteria for selecting what art and artists to promote as well as the cost barrier to owning original works of art.  Each single exhibit is made up of 12 to 24 oil and mixed media drawings on paper ranging in size from 5 x 6 inches to 9 x 9 inches unframed.  Each exhibit occurs outdoors in a public space.  All works are donated to the good home’s of interested individuals.
