Artist Statement

Vote with Your Feet consists of eight pieces that are storage facilities for stencil panels whose images address a particular theme. The image that predominates is that of feet. The feet may be walking, dancing, swimming or suffering some measure of damage, but the feet all bear upon the question of how an individual decides to position him or herself in regards to the larger community. Does one march in step with the collective or does one march to the beat of a different drum?

The templates are cut from rag paper and mounted on a mesh material that has been stretched over wooden frames. The templates are unused so they represent a suspension of process. It is up to the viewer to imagine how the stencils might be used and what the resulting image would look like.

The individual assemblies incorporate from four to twenty stencil panels. Six of the assemblies are wall mounted and two are freestanding. The wall mounted units range in size from four feet high and four feet wide to eleven feet high and twelve feet wide.  Brown kraft paper is stapled to the wall behind the wall mounted pieces, providing the contrast needed to effectively read the images on the stencil panels and contributing to the overall utilitarian appearance of the installation.  Wood products and threaded metal rod or 6” ladder hooks make up the remainder of the assembly. Installation can be effected with conventional hand tools such as a cordless screw gun and a level. In most cases I perform the actual installation. However, in that the Hartnett Gallery is integral to an educational program, I would be there simply to supervise and assist  if that is recommended.
