Sculpture: Spray Paint on Wood.
In Valerie Wilcox’s “Constructs," her works present a reimagined, abstracted understanding of our constructed environment and how our brain works to piece together diverse elements. Wilcox incorporates the ideals of Wabi Sabi into her working process. This aesthetic is centered on the acceptance and beauty of transience and imperfection. It refers to quirks and anomalies arising from the process of construction, which add uniqueness and elegance to both natural and man-made objects.
Wilcox is forming these hybrid constructions using salvaged and humble materials. She embraces the mistakes and gives them a new life, with bits and pieces that appear as if they were casually cobbled together, off-kilter and with an imperfect resolution. The visible evidence of the maker’s hand, the odd assembly and disjointed mechanics in the works reveal her process and addresses our ideals of perfection versus inherent human fallibility.
The found wood she uses is often sourced from houses that are being demolished or remodeled, preferring the old wood with the paint remnants on them, showing a particular usage, thus perhaps holding memories of the lives long past.
Ready to hang.
