David Schnuckel: Meaningful Gibberish
September 11, 2021 - February 20, 2022
David Schnuckel’s Meaningful Gibberish bridges contemporary craft, material study, and multiple media to challenge long-held notions of object making. The interdisciplinary exhibition disrupts traditional glass process to question what words like “mastery” can mean in material relationships, what the term “craftsmanship” can fully encompass when process goes experimental, and where notions of “skill” can truly reside when turned inside out. With works involving glass, photography, writing, drawing, and video, the experimental exhibition ultimately seeks to answer the question: How can an artist break something down as thoughtfully and skillfully as it was once created?
