NOTHING SPECIAL is an art exhibition featuring the work of Phil Lique, Laura Marsh and Jon Stone. The viewer will be pleasantly overwhelmed. Bring Mom.
LAURA MARSH alters and manipulates cultural, national, and social symbols in suspended flags and tactile installations. By floating sculptural forms, flag-like elements engage with the viewer’s space. Marsh explores the formats of the bunting, crest, and rectangle. She reimagines the U.S. flag with velcroed stars and sewn forms to promote the notion of diversity and community building. Her work is loud and addresses common vernaculars in support of humanism and shifting cultural identities.
“My work is about love, war, sex, money, violence, fear and power.
I explore those themes with a vocabulary of art history, corporate academia and the economy of the arts.
….I might be a pop artist, but I’m not sure.”
Through the marriage of text and sculpture, JON STONE examines the immediacy of human reactions to stimuli. He seeks to give form and tactility to verbal responses–those words that signify a gut reaction that we have learned to express through imitation and conditioning. His focus is on human interaction, and the ability of communication to give us hope in the face of our inevitable doom.
