成千上万的小玻璃珠交织在一起的作品

2018-11-08 1443 0
艺术家David Chatt用找到的物品和极小的白色珠子创作了纯白色的作品,探索他的过去、家庭和记忆。早期的作品更纯粹是装饰,比如2004年的《多彩早餐套装》,而在过去的几年里,Chatt简化了他的调色板,探索了他生活中的情感深度,从事了更多情感上的工作。在过去几年创作的作品中,Chatt特别从他的个人和家族史中选取了一些有意义的物品,比如20世纪80年代早期的一个便携式立体声录放机,以及他已故父母的床头柜,还有他母亲用来做无数顿饭的工具。

“Bedside Table(2011)Artist David Chatt explores his past, family, and memories in all-white works created using found objects and minuscule white beads. Whereas earlier work was more purely decorative, like his colorful Breakfast Set (2004), over the last several years Chatt has simplified his color palette and plumbed the emotional depths of his life for more emotionally-engaged work.In pieces created over the past several years, Chatt has drawn specifically from his personal and family history, selecting meaningful objects like a boombox from the early 1980s, the contents of his late parents’ nightstand, and the tools his mother used to create innumerable meals. Using glass beads and thread, the artist carefully covers each object, and he describes the act of covering as a means of both sealing off and protecting his memories. He shares with Colossal, “This process has the power to transform an object that, might as easily be relegated to land fill, into something precious and a record of a time, place or experience, something that encourages my audience to reflect on their own experiences and complete the story that I have begun.”Chatt studied design at Western Washington University, Bellingham, in the late 1980s, where he recalls that a 6-foot-five male pursuing beadwork was not warmly embraced. Over the years, he has continued to refine his beadwork through post-secondary study. You can see work from Chatt in a group exhibition at Denmark’s Glasmuseet Ebeltoft in 2019, and in “A New State of Matter: Contemporary Glassat Boise Art Museum in Idaho from November 3, 2018 to February 3, 2019, a group show which includes work from Steffan Dam (previously) and Amber Cowan (previously). (thnx, Diana!)Detail, “Bedside Table(2011)Detail, “Bedside Table(2011)Detail, “Bedside Table(2011)Detail, “Bedside Table(2011)“If She Knew You Were Coming…(2015)Detail, “If She Knew You Were Coming…(2015)Detail, “If She Knew You Were Coming…(2015)“1982(2015)
