How Everything Changes & All Stays the Same by Jenny Reed
Jenny Reed, Baltimore Clayworks’ 2020-2021 Lormina Salter Fellow, spent half of her residency in quarantine making elaborate tapestries from recycled clothes and fabric with ceramic embellishments.
Features these fabrications paired with her mixed-media sculpture assemblages that tackle the detritus of daily routines with sharp observations and humor. Exploring the liminal space between moments, she records the accumulations of our mundane tasks in a loose and spontaneous style.
“I think about how similar my struggles and thoughts are to people from the past- and the way we soothe ourselves with stories and shared cultural values, whatever they may be. This body of work showcases a personal narrative of the myths I believe, the ones I try to dismiss and the ones I hope to be true. …This transformation from representational reality into a whimsical, wacky alternate universe melts meaning and sparks curiosity and wonder.”
