By Way of the Spectators Eyes






In art we are never in complete control of how a piece will be interpreted. "How will this be viewed by the spectator?", college professors often asked. This String/Mirror series directly deals with the spectator. The spectator actually becomes apart of the piece. They literally get wrapped up in it! It is my hope that these pieces will become personal and introspective to those who view them.

Ryan and I were having a "What is Art" conversation this very evening. I like your interpretation of the viewer becoming part of your art. You have a talent for creating.

Your art is good to get "all wrapped up in". I love those pieces, are they for a specific show?

These pieces are for our show down in Springdale, just outside of Zions National Park at the end of the Summer.

I'm excited to share the wall space in Springdale with you!

These pieces would be a great for a discussion in my spectatorship class. I hadn't thought of that concept but love the idea.

Ashley, you have proven once again that there is no end to creativity, at least not to your creativity.
