For visual artist, Paige Mostowy,
For visual artist, Paige Mostowy, stories are the artifacts from her family’s past, rather than objects or places. Stories are constantly fluctuating and are passed down from person to person, until finally those pieced together histories became truths. Mostowy’s work resides in a space where nostalgia is intertwined with misremembered instances embedded within a persons’ history. Creating reconstituted timelines through physical alteration of banal domesticated items, this body of work represents not only a severed history, but also represents a potential for renewal. Juxtaposing traditional methods of mending, while subsequently rendering objects useless, Mostowy’s practice explores these futile notions of memory and perspective rooted within familial despondencies. She received her BFA from the University of Georgia in 2010 and her MFA in Sculpture from Indiana University in 2015. She has shown both nationally and internationally with solo shows in Chicago, Georgia, and Indiana, and has most recently completed the Stuart Artist in Residence Program in South Dakota.
Closing Reception: February 17th, 6 – 8 pm – Mostowy will discuss her current exhibit, concepts, and practice during a gallery talk at 7 pm. This will be a casual, family-friendly event, with light refreshments provided.
