Looking and Thinking
March 3 – 31, 2015
Opening Reception: Sunday, Mar. 8, 2 - 4 pm
Ethel Poindexter is from many places. Born in Central America, she has also lived in Europe, North America and the Caribbean. She has lived in the Pioneer Valley in Western MA for at least fifteen years with excursions to different lands during that time. Poindexter has had several solo exhibitions in New York City most notably at OK Harris.
She currently resides in Oregon working for the University of Oregon in their Sculpture Art Department .
For this show I have put together work that has occurred in a particular space in time. Specifically--a year after some sad markers occurred in life. These are sketches; small works that are dealing with the labor of making Art.
I am physically making moves and seeing what emerges from my actions. As I allow the structure, of what I am making, to emerge I feel more in the moment and focused on the next move without being aware of an outcome.
Some works represented are from outside the studio.
These are long walks in New York City. This represents the labor of Looking and Thinking.
