Delanie Jenkins - "Maker Marks"

September 8 - October 9, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, September 11, 6:00 - 10:00 pm
Curated by Alex Gingrow and Michael Scoggins for BFP Creative

Whether it is an attempt at transcendence, an homage to the practice of meditation, or an effort to assuage one’s internal echoes and maladies, the practice of repetitive mark making in art carries both the weight of history and the suggestion of the sublime.  The repetitive mark is performative in its essence and is a manifestation of the passage of time. In a world where time is increasingly of the essence, the artists in Maker Marks work in contradiction to the ever-rushing, fever-pitch trends. Their mediums are not only thread, color pencil, tape, pen, and paper, but also time, endurance, and discipline.

Maker Marks features works by Man Bartlett, Ghost of a Dream, Shanti Grumbine, Jessie Henson, Delanie Jenkins, Lindsey Landfried, David X. Levine, Joe Nanashe, and Amanda Tiller.

Delanie Jenkins' works using color pencil and tape play with the unintentional interference of the hand and optics.
