Memories are capricious. Time can alter our memories, and some of us have "better" memories than others. Sometimes memories will hit you unknowingly, triggered by a passing scent or scene, and reminds you of another time. This sensation, a triggered remembrance via things, and the memories tied to it are what the artist and graduating Masters of Fine Art student, Tony Wise explores in his exhibition "Delineating Marks".
Using clay to represent divisions of time in non-traditional formats, Wise produces an exhibition that plays upon these unstable and fleeting memories and the emotions they produce. As noted by the artist, "this work forces me to question patterns we develop throughout our lives," we catalogue our lives through memories – but what does it actually mean? It is this transient, changeable connection we all have, but it also a part of us, unique, and bound to us as our own histories. Wise expresses this through his ceramic pieces which also culminates his Masters of Fine Arts degree in Ceramics here at Texas Tech University.
Tony a Lubbock native and attended Western Texas College early in his career. He then transferred to Utah State University to finish his undergraduate studies. Before attending graduate school he was awarded residencies in Australia, Colorado, and California. His work has been exhibited regionally, nationally, and internationally. Wise will graduate from Texas Tech University with his Masters of Fine Art in Ceramics in December of 2017.
The TTU Satellite Gallery at CASP is located at 1108 5th Street (5th street and Avenue J) in downtown Lubbock. Gallery hours are Friday, December 1st, 6pm – 9pm. and by appointment through December 16, 2017.
