Trevor Tubelle’s “Board Game Drawing #1”

Trevor Tubelle created an interactive and collaborative artwork that combined drawing tools and methods with board game-like elements of chance and decision-making. Visitors would sit at one of two tables covered in hand-drawn playing boards and pick a card from a pile of playing cards. Each card would have different directions to follow involving the use of pens, pencils or rubber stamps. Visitors would be directed to perform various tasks, such as rolling dice, asking questions of other visitors, spraying pen marks with a water sprayer, counting, etc.

Josh Keller’s “Drawer Study C: Stacked (1-3)”


“Today I called my much-loved great aunt.  I spoke; we wept.  I want to believe in the solidity of things.  I trust the fixtures that anchor my life.  But even the most reliable of structures are not fixed.  They change, evolve, age, and fall.  Failure leaves traces even when the body is gone.”

Laura Jacobson’s “Resonance Puncuated L+”


Inspired by digital MRIs of the human brain, clay slabs are stamped repeatedly with pressings from industry and technology, formed into bio brain sculptures, and arrayed in a grid on the wall. The pigmented ceramic describes the material brain while evoking the ethereal mind, plastic, whimsical, and in search of pattern and meaning. Ceramic, with its long history of utility and rich associations as art and artifact, stands in for temporal human endeavor: each notation on the raw surface, once vitrified by kiln fire, captures a brief moment. As do the standing vessels, whose abstracted forms with fissures and geological ruts (cum industrial stampings) remind of human fragility and persistence.

Gallagher-Iverson: “12 feet of drawn pastel on wax… The largest in my encaustic landscape series. My first artwork touching on the subject of losing our baby boy.”






Trevor Tubelle’s “List #2 (Excessive listing)”

Trevor Tubelle’s “List #1 (Master en-List)”

Trevor Tubelle spent three years collecting dozens of ordinary hand-written lists of every type and size from friends, family and strangers. He then hand-cut and pasted together a 7 inch wide by over 15 ft. long roll of paper to create a “master list” for recording information about each collected list (name of list-maker, date, type of list and catalog number). For the Corporeal Chronologies show he installed the master list on the wall and clustered all the lists around it. Each list is hung with a thumbtack that is coiled with wire and strung to another thumbtack on the master list next to it’s corresponding entry line:


The installation is over 10 feet tall by almost 6 feet wide, with the leftover portion of the master list rolled at the bottom (and awaiting future list submissions).
