Nancy Shaver: “50 Years: Learning to Be an Artist”

“I am an artist, and collector of visual sensation. Observation, for me, is a critical tool for identifying spaces between mass culture and the individual. Daily errands, chores, and daily exchanges for carrying out getting from A to B are the vehicle for examination. For me, art takes place in these gaps. Specific gaps which define a present situation, personal or global which is always moving. Moving fast, out of grasp, constant flowing information, changing always. Art, for me, happens in conjunction with decoration, and is always fighting decoration. The activity of the agreement of art and decoration, or the battle of it are truly engaging for me.” – Nancy Shaver
