Reanimated: A New Purpose

by Adrian DesJardins

Holzer Community Gallery located at 2131 E State St, Athens, OH 45701

July 6th – September 4, 2023

My work is meant to be transformative. I attempt to reanimate mundane objects, giving them a completely new narrative. Some of the items incorporated in these pieces were selected purposefully, while others were surprise finds. Either way, my intention is always to elevate a more beautiful existence than they previously had. The inspirations and visions for my work are things I greatly enjoy sharing.

Topographies is a series of abstract paintings on fabric inspired by landscapes and geological forms. Unstretched and suspended, the paintings reside somewhere between painting and object, encouraging the viewer to interact with the work within the gallery space. Signature devices such as simplified shapes, patterns, and bright and contrasting color combinations construct both physical and psychological spaces on an impressive scale.

Quilts are sculpture, and as such, they exist in the world, passing through time and taking up space. This means that by the nature of the universe, they get interacted with. LUKE plans to create an installation piece with a series of 10 Quilts designed to reflect the experience of existence. Each time the quilts are exhibited, they are changed. Though they start as simple blankets, by the end, they will have the artifacts and narrative of ‘being’ embedded in them visually. 

Opening Reception on Friday, January 13th, 6 – 8 pm.

On view January 13th – March 19th ,2023
 We believe all women are capable, courageous, creative, and inspired. 
The Women of Appalachia Project was created to address discrimination directed at women from the Appalachian region by encouraging participation from women artists of diverse backgrounds, ages, and experiences to come together, to embrace the stereotype, to show the whole woman; beyond the superficial factors that people use to judge her.
