A Material Thing is an attempt to construct a logic in which to better see objects, both as discrete and in relationship, and to understand from that relationship the objects themselves. The work takes a series of systems and creates abstracted representations that connect to the way we see and think about objects, the way objects relate to other objects, while also questioning the relationship between part and whole.
Artist John Shea will have his inaugural show in the Rochester area, and is an educator at RIT.
