Stories the Hummingbird Told Me, 2000 Installed at the UVSC Woodbury Gallery in Orem, Utah
These dresses are about resurrecting the past and preserving the present. I started with dated second-hand pieces of clothing that I feel carry certain psychological weight: the once-prized party dress or previously useful scrub gown that were no longer of use to their original owners. These dresses I then dipped in wet plaster and left to dry over a form. Detail from Stories the Hummingbird Told Me
The painted flora and fauna refer to the life teeming around the farmhouse where I lived. A hummingbird often visited me because of my bright frock and gave me the inspiration to depict the wondrous wildlife I watched. Detail from Stories the Hummingbird Told Me
This work is about healing the broken, creating order from chaos. It came out of an obsession with the extras and left-overs that I collect. In my subconscious moments I began trying to put together fragments that didn t have their matching pieces anymore and found they became much more interesting that way. Ephemerata Mixed Media Installation, 7 x 11 x 3 ft. 2000
Park Sung Tae 1987 B.F.A, Dept of Oriental Painting, College of Fine Arts, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea 1993 M.F.A, Graduate School of Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea (Major: Oriental Painting)
Annette Messager Art is like a secret, an epigraph. It is literally cut out of life. We must not try too show to much, to divulge everything, to unveil too much. Art is a secret shared between the individual and the collective. In order to be touched by a work of art, it must first refer to the person who made it, a strong personality, and it must touch the collective, everyone must find something in this order
Bio born in Berck, France, in 1943 Trained at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs (School of Decorative Arts) in Paris Her approach encompasses painting, embroidery, sculpture, assemblage, collage, film montage, and even writing in installations She does not differentiate between high and low forms of art, and her mixing of sources and media reflects her view that art be opened up to the disorder of life. Her work is held in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art

Detail from Story of Dresses 1990 dress, photograph, drawing, string, glass box. overall dimensions variable As in each individual, there is the side that reveals, discloses things and a side that hides, conceals.
