ARTIST STATEMENT Ziggy Rendler-Bregman 2014
Pulling From Everything
THERE Here, where you are IS A FIELD
I am there, also
moving about, doing what we do
ALL DAY ALL NIGHT MAKING UNRAVELLINg
TELLING MARKING ERASINg
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
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
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.
