When we see trash on a trail, whether we ignore this detritus of human existence or we pick it up, our perception of an otherwise pristine wilderness is altered.
Yet if the crushed V8 can and the bottle cap are arranged on an old wooden plank, we are presented with an alternate reality.
The current exhibit at the Art Center at Fuller Lodge, “Everything Old is New Again: Recycled and Experimental” provides a unique opportunity for contemplating this dynamic.
Kathleen Fraser’s photograph, “London Bridges” provides a thematic interpretation, capturing the interplay of moss covered stone pilings standing sentinel beside the metal spans of a more contemporary bridge on the Thames, backed by a modern high-rise. Katherine Gauntt’s experimental “No Rules” slashes slogans of rebellion across the canvas in an old medium (paint) with a newer style (graffiti).
Many artists focused on the recycled aspect of the theme, transforming trash to treasure. Patricia Stein’s unusual bricolage collects the V8 can with other bits of discard in a piece called “Roadkill.”
