ARTIST STATEMENT                  Ziggy Rendler-Bregman 2014

Pulling From Everything

THERE                       Here, where you are                         IS             A            FIELD

STANDING

SITTING

WALKING

LYING DOWN

I am there, also

and others

moving about, doing what we do

ALL DAY           ALL NIGHT            MAKING                UNRAVELLINg

TELLING            MARKING            ERASINg

SOMETIMES

We get a glimpse of something else: Meteor, a blue lizards tail, falling water

hummingbird sipping nectar                           fear                                    love

MY WORK records, restores, realizes what is seen, heard, touched, imagined

THIS WORK is a witness to my own life.

NOW I am exploring the concept of                          VESSEL AND ENERGY

CONTAINER                 FINDING                           WHAT IS POURED IN

POURED OUT

Perhaps everything is a container…a form that gives shape to it all.

LETTER.WORD.POEM                                                                      EVEN SONG

I find ways to describe the VESSEL THAT IS OPEN                       TO RECEIVE

And the VESSEL THAT IS CLOSED                                                    TO HOLD

SOMETIMES

It is a mysterious landscape, other times simply a cup.

Discover with a pencil, charcoal, erasers, paint, ink, press, poems what is contained there.

The one who sees these images, in some way, is also making them.
