JO ADDISON & ALICE WALTON

About

Talking of the speed and mass dissemination of art through books in the late 1960s, Seth Siegelaub described ideas as being 'faster than tedious objects'. Here, by contrast, Jo Addison and Alice Walton present unashamedly slow, obtuse objects. Addison interprets mundane objects and images with loose figuration and a deliberately provisional approach to materials. Things are depicted by implication and reduction, rather than by detailed description. Walton's sculptural objects are configured to support and re-present collections of found images. Constructed from everyday materials such as cardboard, Polystyrene or plasterboard, the elements are simply assembled with the method of production left clearly visible. Footnote: Seth Sieglaub quoted by David Shirley, 'Impossible Art - What it is', Art in America, vol. 57, no.3 (May-June1969), p. 39 'People who have [art] galleries can show their object only in one place at a time. I am not limited. I can have my ideas in twenty different places at once. Ideas are faster than tedious objects.'
