Randal Sumner, Composition (Art)
The work in my terminal project exhibition reflects ideas that have been constant in my previous to my two-year M.F.A. studio experience. My last two years have been spent developing these ideas, as well as discarding and exploring others.
I have grouped my work by medium rather than by specific pieces. I find it impossible to consider a single work out of context of the larger series. Evan an unsuccessful work has its place illuminating the direction of the entire production. I have tried to use drawing, lithography, and painting with a concern for thier intrinsic properties. All the work has a common formal vocabulary, so I will try not to repeat similiar problems or solutions that reoccur among different media.
