About the Exhibition

“I exist in a material world. Daily, I am bombarded with a wealth of materials, from the discarded to the procured, and those the media and others tell me I need. Media Whore: The Persistence of Making is driven by this material awareness. I live in an era of diminished attention spans, my own included, in which the next best thing is waiting just around the corner. I, like others, am privileged to the pleasure of material diversity, spontaneity, and the idea of the moment. Where once, at least, there was the material constant of the artist and craftsman, now, even the material world evolves at almost the rate of that of the media. New plastics, resins, metal alloys, and paints continually come to market, begging for their inclusion and acceptance. This collection of work represents my way of being and with what the world surrounds me.”

— Edward Lane McCartney
