nothing as art

The persona-based work I have done all my life has been moving toward identity and concept-only for some time. I’ve come to the conclusion that I want to do a pure conceptual work for an upcoming exhibition at Kutztown’s New Arts Program. The work will be unbounded, empty… I’ve come to see identity as one of the few subjects left after one strips away much of the object-oriented aspects of artwork. Beneath the craft of making art there are conceptual underpinnings. This encourages me to consider that after identity matters and concept, the rest is craft – and in many ways has no essential significance.Further, I’m coming to see the definition of concept as unnecessary and counterproductive – hence the intention to exhibit nothing. More later on this and I’ll post the exhibition info soon.
