Twist etc. Arcade #77 opening January 8th 2011




Artist Statement:


The Process of Product | 12 x 12


The content of this exhibition is more about recording the creative process than focusing on the typical "product" we are used to seeing in a gallery exhibition. Although, each artwork stands on it’s own as a finished work. Every artist involved was asked to generate ideas and/or make studies at the size of 12 x 12 inches based on their own creative desires. The result is an interesting look at what themes are born out of their subconscious. All of the individual ideas shown together create a kind of collective creativity, some having visual and/or intellectual connections with one another. Each 12 x 12 work is a moment along the way of developing one’s ideas. Working at this small scale encouraged experimentation and personal investigation.

Also deviating from the typical art exhibition is the way the viewer encounters and examines the artwork. Unlike the standard gallery format where works are spaced out in plain view, the grid invites people closer to see each work individually.




Bio:

Approximately 90 young artists from WKU were asked to take part in this exhibition. The over all majority are Art majors from Studio Art, Graphic Design or Art Education. The artistic backgrounds of those involved are extremely diverse, raging from no former artistic training to an abundance of pervious art and design classes. Professors Brent Dedas and Yvonne Petkus created and coordinated the project.
