Ten-ten-two-thousand-ten is an exhibition that examines the creative process of ten individuals. Each contributor has created ten pieces in a body of work.
The idea for this exhibition developed out of a project often assigned at SUNY New Paltz where the objective is for students to have a limited amount of time to create a concise, abridged body of work. The project becomes an exercise in stream of consciousness thinking, decision-making, material exploration and consideration, sketching and model-making. The results are raw but thoughtful. By implementing limited parameters, the work reflects a fresh approach to a familiar medium.
Ten-ten-two-thousand-ten brings together ten graduates from The State University of New York - New Paltz to examine their own making styles. The collection of participants represents the spectrum of working styles- from object makers to installation artists to jewelers. Each of these makers has continued their practice in object or jewelry making, and this exhibit gives them an opportunity to take a step back from their regular practice to participate in a process oriented, idea generating exercise.
