Sometimes, I find things: More often, those things find me. The Finding — things or ideas–is where I begin. My work is a process of discovery, derived from a desire to deconstruct and assimilate a sense of our condition, one that is mostly human. Work takes shape if our minds can recognize both history and potential. Let there be seams, let there be edges. Let the record be one of process, of marks …and of materials. It is from this world of forgotten things that I find beauty. –Tami Sloan Tsark (This 11th of January, 2017)
