Touching Time, Christopher Staley
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present new work by Christopher Staley. In the artist's first solo exhibition in 10 years, Staley uses introspection to locate creativity and selfhood within his artistic process. The work in this exhibition was inspired by Staley's 2019 return to the Archie Bray Foundation and Greenwich House Pottery—two ceramics centers that had a significant impact on his career—30 years after he first encountered them. Re-encountering these spaces made Staley reconsider how his life experience has affected his work. Like the Process Artists of the '60s and '70s, he began to reevaluate where "art" occurred in his making process. Was it the finished object or the steps along the way? By analyzing his work as metaphor and interrogating his creative process, Staley leads by example and encourages other artists to do the same, raising the question: Are the objects in this exhibition the art, or is the introspection Staley sparks in others his true art?
