An exhibition of new works by the 2012/2013 WonderRoot Walthall Artist Fellows.
“ONE ONE was curated incrementally, as much by the committee that selected the artists to form a Fellowship as by the leaders and mentors who freely shared so much wisdom and vision with them. Even more, ONE ONE was guided by the eleven artists themselves, who have listened closely to each other as they learned out loud over the course of the year. Their expert listening may have led to the calm coherence of these rooms.
ONE ONE was eleven singularities with a shared interest in essence. Where there is mystery, there is warmth and invitation. Where there is rigor, there is charm and ease. Where there is wild experiment, there has been much deliberation.
All artworks in ONE ONE were made in 2013, and many were completed in the weeks and days preceding the opening of the exhibition. Many emerged from a moment of pause. Many employ a new idea or process. The year of Walthall has been a year of introspection, and these works all pulse like a solar-powered lamp at dusk. They have been storing energy.”
