TEN DEGREES OF WRONG

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

When I was a little girl, my mother and I made boxes (we called them peep shows). Using a shoe box, collored cellophane, newspaper and magazine cutouts, we created fairy tales and monster tales, hung a light over the box and peeped through a hole in the side.

My mom quoted Clifford Odets to me, "We are living in a time when new art should shoot bullets". I never forgot.


These boxes, Ten Degrees of Wrong, are of such a time -- our time. They are what I read, see and hear -- child labor, torture, tyranny, opression and more, of course. Instead of 10 they should be 100, 1000 or a million. Every artist has something stuck in her craw. She coughs and coughs and somemtimes it comes out.
