Dusted
DUSTIN FOSNOT, solo exhibition
March 19th - April 24th, 2010

Opening Reception: March, 19th 2010 6pm - 9pm

The luggage store is pleased to present a solo exhibition featuring “Dusted: work by Dustin Fosnot. Fosnot uses materials that are close at hand or found on the street and reworks them to comment on their originating environment or their related materiality His work is also about creating other worlds, which the viewer can be transported to - all the pieces are loosely tied together through their content, the different materials in the pieces are related in terms of the cheapness or found aspects.

The pieces revolve around stereotypical depictions of environmental degradation, the economy, or pollution. However, these larger themes are more like springboards with which to create other worlds, which have simpler meanings people can relate to such as wonder and humor. Most of this work balances between cliché, darkness, play, and humor.

For instance, one of Fosnot’s works “Snow Blind” ( Styrofoam, mixed media, portrays a “fossilized” view of industrial society…where cars are seen speeding down a freeway, frozen in motion. The cars become artifacts of a “lost age”

Fosnot finds beauty in trash or what most people find useless. Reworking material such as broken glass into geological formations, begins to speak about the erosive forces of nature that are at play within the urban environment and how time tends to overwhelm and engulf all things cities, mountains, and earth.
