Norman Sherfield | Knot This Way, Waxed Linen Fiber Sculptures

July 26th – 30th, 2010

I create small sculptures using a basketry technique known as knotting. It is a simple overhand knot which is knotted around a core of waxed linen threads. With variations of this simple knot, which is repeated over and over, I am able to create a variety of shapes, textures and color patterning.

NONE OF THE ABOVE Assembling, Collaborating and Publishing in the Eternal Network

"Assembling" represents the ultimate in democratic art and was an outgrowth of the Fluxus movement of the 1960s and '70s. Groups of artists -- often those active in the mail art community -- collaborated to produce compilations of work void of editorial oversight. This exhibition celebrates those independent voices through an historical overview of past publications and contemporary examples. Work on display will be from a variety of public and private collections, curated by 2007 Winter Book co-editor Tom Cassidy and MCBA Artistic Director Jeff Rathermel. A series of Assemblings will be produced by MCBA allowing visitors to see the process in action.

I have sent work for the Assembling which are basically digital printing over pages from magazines. I used this black and white image of spores and printed it over mostly pages of portraits. The image varies in intensity depending on the magazine image, but these have a nice tattoo like effect. I am a fan of John Cage and basically use some of his chance technique in creating these images. I go through various magazines taking out pages and picking a side of the page to print and then print them, without actually trying to pre-determine the look. The printed image and one of my favorite images are above. More scanned images can be seen at my Flickr account. Hope you like them.
