"THE STATISTICAL NATURE OF PRIME"
Paintings / Sculptures by Joseph Deschene
January & February 2014 Exhibit
Reception with artist: Friday, February 7, 2014 - 5:00 to 7:00 pm
“The Statistical Nature of Prime” grew out of an earlier concentration that explored aspects of contemporary American folk art and its relationship to primal cultures. This connection is still relevant to my work today. I was fascinated by the unification of art and the utilitarian object. The combination of creative expression and objects that perform a function is rooted in the very nature of who we are.
In the pursuit of communication and understanding rooted in the utilitarian, I have turned to the universal language of mathematics. Math is the underpinning language of everything, and when you look closely you will find it. The statistical nature of prime is an attempt to use this language for discovery.
Prime exists either as a primary or secondary narrative. Each work addresses a different aspect of prime and at the same time discusses another subject. It is not my intent to provide answers, in most cases I am simply asking a question. My hope is, the viewer will come out of the experience with a better understanding of themselves.
I believe that each of the works in this exhibit at their core remain utilitarian. An object that inspires self-discovery is still performing a function.
