thinking of things: Frances Trombly

Love the work of Frances Trombly. Her solo show “thinking of things” was on at David Castillo Gallery (2234 NW 2 Avenue, Miami, Florida) from 10 May 2008 to 7 June 2008.

Her work gave a “profound pause for traditional sculpture practices and a new direction for often overlooked objects” “she has made both objects that are not normally made from fiber and others that normally are” “her work explores an aesthetic reconsideration of objects we would rarely give any pause other than their immediate use and eventual discarding” her work deals “with false realities, the artist’s work continues to explore labor, perception, women’s issues and history” [from the catalogue essay David Castillo Gallery]

Yes! Out of the ordinary. A way of seeing that we take back into our own space

Definitely “art” in the eye of the beholder.
