2  Sculpture - among the first subjects to be treated in photography  Immobility of sculpture  Desire to document, collect, publicize, and circulate objects  Photographers – reinvent HISTORY OF SCULPTURE PHOTOGRAPHY

3  Born 1959, Seattle, WA  Lives and works in New Haven, CT  Director of Graduate Studies in Sculpture JESSICA STOCKHOLDER - SHORT BIO

4  Paper -> Unstretched Canvas -> Bits of Cloth -> Filled a Whole Space  Space, not a critique, but an exploration ARTISTIC CAREER

5  Brings together common objects and raw materials.  Somehow invites magic and the possibility of turning items we normally perceive as having little aesthetic value.  Work -> optimistic, energetic, fun.  Color makes her work more abstract, “it always asserts itself as independent of material.”  “I use material as a place to make fiction, fantasy, and illusion.” ARTISTIC CONCEPT

6 IT’S NOT OVER ‘TILL THE FAT LADY SING S

7 “Energetic, cacophonous, & idiosyncratic” Formal decisions about color, composition, and tempering chaos with control.

8 KISSING THE WALL "Lights plug into the wall and call attention to the electrical wires that are in the wall. It’s static to look at these light bulbs. They don’t do anything. It’s a static, still image that the lights present. But it is an event because electricity moves, and the electricity is active in the wall. So, conceptually, I like it that the stillness of the work is disrupted."

9 SWEET FOR THREE ORANGES "I used a lot of oranges because they’re orange! Here they were in this birdcage. And I like that they’re orange and they have a beautiful color and that they’re so luscious- almost a cliché of beautyand sexuality. Oranges immediately bring all of that up. And for me they are also like electricity on the walls. Though they’re participating in the work like a still life, in fact they’re degenerating and changing, and they’re fluid."
