Have It All
Casey Arguelles Gregory
In her own words:
Have It All is my most personal exhibition to date. All of the works in this show attempt to reconcile my own experiences as an artist with my experiences as an average, thirty-something mother with a part-time job. Issues as diverse as feminism, gentrification, middle-class materialism and the sometimes contradictory physical landscape of suburbia are on offer here. The exhibition unites sculpture and painting in a variety of modes, all of which are firmly rooted in my process-based practice.
Through these different approaches to artmaking, I hope to present a broad, humane, and sometimes humorous investigation of what it means to be a young (ish), emerging (ish), female artist in this specific time and place. These works, individually but especially collectively, represent a radical descent from the thirty-thousand foot academic perspective that I have traditionally taken. They are of, and about, my own life- an autobiographical offering in which I hope you the viewer will find some glimpses of the familiar.
