> DESCRIPTION

Press Blurb:

The invented word, "personifimotion" draws its meaning from the combination of the word motion and the psychological word personification (when an abstract thing takes on a human form or trait). The overlying concept explores ephemeral and time-based movement embedded as invisible lines in the participating artists’ process. The process’ final outcome is embodied in the works through various forms of abstraction. The result is interactive artworks that challenge and confound both societal and creative normality. 

Exhibition Statement:

Thornton Wilder said, "It is only in appearance that time is a river.  It is a rather vast landscape and it is the eye of the beholder that moves."   Or to spin it: The movement of the eyes of the beholder can shape the vast landscape over a river of time.

The invented word, "personifimotion" draws its meaning from the combination of the word motion and the psychological word personification (when an abstract thing takes on a human form or trait). The overlying concept explores ephemeral and time-based movement embodied as invisible lines in the participating artists’ process. The final outcome addresses identity and a visceral sense of orientation through artworks that incorporate performance, intervention, surveys, painting, sculpture and site-specific installations. In essence, it will help define new meanings of the sense of place, collectively and individually.  

Every day is a sequence of events and actions, pulling us back and forth through an ebb and flow of responsibility meeting leisure, of challenge meeting pleasure.   We are, for all intents and purposes, defined by where we are and where we have been, defined either personally or by others both physically and emotionally. “Personifimotion” seeks to address this daily order and chaos, revealing what provides structure and/or creates intervention in life. 

 “Personifimotion” asks, "How will you spend your time moving through this vast landscape?"

About the curator:

She is an artist and founder/curator of Gallery Revisited, a contemporary art gallery that launched emerging artists and gleaned recognition from The Los Angeles Times,  artUS, LA Weekly and White Hot Magazine to name a few. Personifimotion is her thesis for the Mt. San Antonio College Art Gallery Design/Operation and Art Profession Certificate Program.
