    January 9-February 18, 2012

    Conway, SC

    For the Rebecca Randall Bryan Gallery at Coastal Carolina University I created an installation whose title is the instructions for creating the work found within the gallery. The show is a continuation of my explorations of materials found within the contemporary coffee shop merged with the processes of British nature based works of the 70’s and 80’s. Wooden coffee stir sticks woven in place with tension, coffee cup sleeves stacked inside of one another and coffee grounds pressed into the wall combine to create a series of compositional elements designed to activate the entire gallery space. As with all the works in my “Have Sticks Will travel Series” everything is created in situ so that the gallery becomes the studio and exhibition site for the work. In this way the physical work itself is merely a record of  time spent with the materials selected in response to a given space. This show is part of a suite of  South Carolina installations along with “Fine Lines, Found Textures, and First Impressions” at Columbia College in February 2012
