Perry Doane: Full Standard (34)

January 10 - 31, 2015
Opening reception Saturday January 10, 6-9 PM

The challenge of reinterpreting complex systems on my own terms has always appealed to me. I am not a practical, logical, linear thinker. I see things in reverse order - taking the wrong path to find my own way in. This has taught me to make a lot of work and then work reductively.

I rely on my immediate and direct experience with American institutions to drive whatever gut reactions I may have. As I progress through imagery, I am generating new meanings and reasons for manipulating the work. Rules emerge and are systematically dismantled. I enjoy allowing myself to push the uncontrolled. Often the process and building the processes becomes the work. The structure is at once documentation and research, evidence and action. I am remembering who I was while questioning the fabrication of the foundations the individual is built upon.
