I Create As I Speak [2015]

I Create As I Speak.

Pushing through a glass-paned door, you enter into a quiet space at the very back of the exhibition hall. You are far enough above the city that the noise of traffic is no longer a physical presence. Underfoot are two patterned carpets, one large and one small. The larger of the two is positioned in front of a diptych, one large, orthagonal shelf holding a variety of objects and another small, triangular shelf that supports the weight of one tiny jar. The smaller rug is placed in front of a live-edge elm shelf. The title of the show, “I create as I speak,” is one proposed translation of the incantation “abracadabra,” and this space seems to be hinting at the presence of some kind of magic.
