Artaxis member, Linda Lopez's "Some things need nothing", made with ceramic, ink and gouache on paper. She writes about her work, "I resist acknowledging that the objects inhabiting our lives are inanimate. By considering the objects’ needs, and denying our needs for those objects, they can expose a life and language of their own. A stack of books hidden by a blanket of dust waits patiently to fulfill its purpose. The books appear to be aged and desolate, yet shielded and protected by time and neglect. By carefully observing the relationships between the things around us, I have found them to reveal their physical and psychological states that often go unnoticed. In this realm, objects are personified, perception is ever changing, and things become their true self."
