Debris Field

Debris Field, curated by Lisa Dahl, runs from September 3 to November 3, 2013, at the Castle Gallery.

From the curator:

Our modern lives create a wake of refuse from our daily consumption habits: plastic containers, cardboard boxes, and a multitude of short-term or single-use products. Trash, whether saved from our own wastebaskets or salvaged from the street, comes laden with guilty associations and questionable provenance. Yet, the very familiarity of these materials can provide us with a deeper understanding into their creative repurposing. In the hands of the artists in Debris Field, these common castoffs are transformed into new objects imbued with beauty, thoughtfulness, even humor — a reincarnation of the practical into the sublime. Their artistic labor is often repetitive and intricate, and laced with a desire to change the status quo of how we perceive the products deemed disposable in our lives.

The artists are:

  • Michael Anderson
  • Scott Andresen
  • Lisa Dahl
  • Ghost of a Dream
  • Ruth Hardinger
  • Jack Henry
  • Gregg Hill
  • Sara Hubbs
  • Vandana Jain

There will be an opening reception at the Mooney Center Gallery from 12 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 29, part of the New Rochelle Arts Fest, organized by the New Rochelle Council on the Arts. The event will also serve as the opening reception for the Mooney Center Gallery show Sequence of Bases.
