  1. These common urban barriers have been a source of inspiration for myself and many of the artists that I am interested in, Amze Emmons, Nicola Lopez, and more. All of these objects represent the everyday, calling attention to our ability to close out others and create barriers within our communities. I really enjoy the concept of this show. I like the way that these barriers also direct the way the viewer enters the exhibition, having to turn around and enter through the backdoor, due to a large fence obstruction in the middle of the gallery.

  2. As I am moving more into conceptual installation pieces, I find this body of work very moving. To take these every-day things and bring them into a clean, crisp white space really makes the uniqueness of these objects pop. This results into the object becoming something much more than it once was.
