Line Bruntse and Steve Budington
Monday, January 24 - Thursday, February 10, 2005
Intimate Exposure provides a fresh look at the work of sculptor Line Bruntse and painter Steve Budington. The artists comprise the UMASS Department of Art Foundation Program. Bruntse tends to work in three formats: 1) large scale installations, 2) miniatures/intimate objects which relate to large works, 3) drawings, using the techniques from her sculpture. In her artist statement Bruntse states that working on large scale installations allows her to surround the viewer and alter their perception of time and space. Budington, a recent graduate of the Yale MFA program is often asked why he paints books. The question itself, says Budington, cuts to both the interest and the difficulty of his project. In his mind, he does not paint books, he paints dictionaries, or more specifically, he paints a few dictionaries the ones he lives and works with; in his own words: Not the dictionary, but this dictionary. Not the thing's idea, but the thing itself.
