Picturing Silence: Photographs, Paintings and Sounds
by Spencer Hutchinson
Reception: Saturday, Nov 10, 2018 • 7-10PM
Artist Talk: Saturday, Dec 1, 2018
Picturing Silence is a show about the interstitial practice I found myself engaged in after I stopped making electronic music/sound art and began exploring visual art from a fresh perspective. The centerpiece of the show consists of a collection of large photographs of the sides of picture frames, photographs that represent my own Cagein experience of silence that occurred while I was working as a visitor service representative at the Knoxville Museum of Art in Knoxville, TN. The paintings represent my own exploration of sound related themes that carry over into painting. The single sound piece in the show, 8-track sinfonia, is comprised of several hours of music by J.S. Bach slowed down and represented in ambient musical form, a sound project I engaged in while pursuing my reinvigorated visual art practice.
