> DESCRIPTION

Accretion, by Beverly Rayner, inhabits the form of an exaggerated housecoat, covered with the residual ephemera carefully saved by one person over a lifetime. Greeting cards, bills, receipts, notes, inspirational quotes, prayers, poems and letters sheath the garment. In Accretion, Rayner illustrates the burden of psychological entanglement that human beings have with overabundance. These everyday objects are amassed into a monument to this human compulsion.

Beverly Rayner's work is in the Oakland Museum of California, the San Jose Museum of Art in San Jose, California, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas. She is a past recipient of the Rydell Visual Arts Fellowship.
