“No Trouble Exists”
First Saturday, June 1, 5–9 pm
The artist will discuss their work on Saturday, June 15 at 2:00 pm
In “No Trouble Exists,” Julie Maynard presents digital collages and a handful of maquettes that reflect on the enduring interest we have in what other people do. Each collage is inspired by a hundred-year-old headline.
“These pieces are, in part, memento mori,” says Maynard. “The snow through which the chicken thieves were tracked has long since melted. The watch that turned up in a furrow has been lost over and over again. The things that inspired these pictures happened so long ago that no one remembers them. And yet here they are, seeming to comment on some of our own preoccupations.”
