Line of Inquiry: Volumes

Anna Jannack

September 5 – 28, 2019

First Thursday: September 5, 5 – 8pm

From the artist:

This word has several meanings. It can be used to refer to a book, to identify a particular book in a collection, to talk about the amount of space an object occupies, to describe a container in terms of its capacity, a quantity or amount, and even to describe the quantity of sound. This line of inquiry explores volumes referring to books, volumes referring to the amount of psychic pain and or periods of turmoil stored in our human mind. These paintings talk about our ability to store and catalogue what has happened to us, our ability to both retrieve and forget.

Sometimes volumes of anguish exceed our capacity to process our own experiences, and we then become readily available to feel the intensity of any injury, no matter how small the provocation. Other times we can thrive and integrate even the most horrid moments of our lives and the most unbearable pain. Sometimes the library of our minds seems complex beyond comprehension and other times it seems simple and poetic.
