Brackett Creek Exhibitions is pleased to present a selection of work by Johanna Jackson, Georgia McGovern and Wally Whitehurst. Each share an interest in mereology: the study of parts and the wholes they form. They embrace a historic and metaphorical democratization of artistic labor, becoming a “part” both historically and metaphorically as an artistic position. The materials, art-making structures, and the time spent with the works becomes conceptually tied to the humility of knowing that one is part in a whole. Making the painting becomes secondary to making the paint and the canvas.
