Some Fun, You Bet!

Abstract (Summary)

My sketchbooks are chock full of drawings, compiling observations, encounters and inspirations culled from my interactions with the world. Looking at over a decade's worth of sketchbooks, it is revealed that I have spent a lot of time drinking, more time being frustrated, and even more time playing with goofy ideas as if they were toys. How would a face look on a bottle? When would a bird need a beer? Where am I? I wanted to create a space that could foster for a group these same feelings that my sketchbooks illicit for me. In Some Fun, You Bet, my MFA thesis show, I tried to create a series of individual, large scale, sculptural pieces that would, in conjunction, simulate the collections that populate the pages of my sketchbooks. In collaboration with friends I feel I did just that.
