In this exhibit, the curators have chosen two- and three-dimensional works that break with conventional borders of the traditional square or rectangular format. The selection includes fiber and paper site specific installations, wall relief sculpture, freestanding sculpture, photography, fiber arts, video, stitched compositions, and paintings.
“We were looking for work that not only stretched the limitations of the traditional boundaries that artist work within, but also the manner in which the artists used their materials and mediums,” explains curator Virginia S Block.
The use of unconventional materials includes melted Tyvek as a choice for a support, stained and shaped canvas presented with the use of traditional stretcher bars, and felt, just to mention a few.
Tracey feels that “without the use of borders, a certain type of flow exists throughout the exhibition, the works connecting to one another through elements of color, line, texture and form creating an overall sense of unity.”
