Kerry Phillips

Artist Statement Submitted 2018

Eliciting relationships of a collective narrative while challenging notions of place and consumption, I work with beautifully rich objects and items that are borrowed, discarded, or collected to create sculptures and installations. I invite others to share their things, collect all of a particular kind of thing from my studio, or gather together the engaging things that others have cast aside. In this process, my work honors the memory that the object holds—of those who have touched the object, loved it, passed it down, left it behind, used it, and eventually discarded it—opening the door for new memories to be formed. I work with immediacy, responding to sites and available materials, creating a candid representation, or inventory, of specific moments.
