RODNEY EWING

Rodney Ewing is currently Artist in Residence at Recology, San Francisco's recycling center. He writes:

"While debating demanding topics such as race, religion, or war, it is simple enough to become polarized, and see situations in either black or white, right or wrong.  These tactics may satisfy individuals whose position depends on employing policies or implementing strategies that promote specific agendas for a specific constituency. 

"But as an artist, it is more important to create a platform that moves us past alliances, and begins a dialogue that informs, questions, and in some cases even satires our divisive issues.  Without this type of introspection, we are in danger of having apathy rule our senses.  We can easily succumb to a national mob mentality, and ignore individual accounts and memories.  With my work I am creating an intersection where body and place, memory and fact are merged to re-examine human interactions and cultural conditions to create a narrative that requires us to be present and profound."
