10:00 AM – Studio visit with artist, Danville Chadbourne
Essentially, my work is concerned with evoking spiritual or primal states. The works often seem interrelated, part of some culture with an elaborate but undefined mythological structure. I’m interested in the intellectual speculation we make about other cultures, especially primitive or ancient ones, based on observation of their artifacts. My forms, materials, and processes imply cultural attitudes that are harmonious with nature and the passage of time. Clay, wood, stone, fiber, bone, and found objects have connotative powers. This anthropological perception is a key issue in my work.
