Sharing the “Unsayable”Posted Jan 24, 2013Tagged
I was at the McConnell Arts Center yesterday meeting film/video artist and painter Andrew Ina, and as I was adding more magnets to the exhibit’s Modular Art Magnet walls, a gallery visitor walked in. I stayed silent and still, watching her experience the exhibit. She slowly circled the walls, coming to a stop at several pieces, in particular “Amber Waves” and “Leaving the Nest.”
I saw her look at the title labels, and details, and thought about the importance of titles, how they give a verbal entrance to understanding the artist’s point of view. But most of all, I felt joyful, that all the thought and time and pausing and stopping and starting had resulted in pieces that stood alone, apart from me, speaking to someone I may never talk to, in a way that words could not. I feel grateful to be able to make art for more than just myself, for me it is about sharing the unsayable.
