Bridget Purcell @ Park Towne Place

Bridget Purcell is going to have some fun with us. On May 19th, she will be spending the day
aesthetically remaking the sport of volleyball. The lawn at Park Towne Place will be her
installation site. That location – sun flooded, grassy, and large – was the inspirational source for
her project, and it will be fascinating to see how she repurpose it. Purcell will be arriving with
the essential components; Net, ball, and boundary lines.

She is also going to have a wide selection of colorful adornments and extra game equipment to modify. I expect a recontextualized, sculptural version of the food show, Chopped. The audience of residents and passerby will be encouraged to shift between spectatorship and collaboration, as traditional
sports logic is replaced with techniques of crafting and building. Purcell is an artist who, in her own paintings and sculptures, playfully remixes materials to build connections between form and meaning.

We are excited to host her at Park Towne, as she creatively addresses some of
the visual and social conditions of group sports in this large-scale sculptural installation.

Join us on May 19th!

Composing in series, and often series within series, all of my projects from the past couple of decades have dealt with social issues, and more recently have embraced text as both content and image:

*  states of mind as one-word declarations (SO I WAS, LIKE....)

* the interior lives of artists (DESIDERATUM)

* odd courting and mating habits in the animal kingdom that sometimes echo our own (RE:PRODUCTION – Portraits)
* the dysfunction of todays politics seen through an historical perspective (WHEEL, DEAL, STEAL, THEN SPIN)

* death – it’s customs, euphemisms, architecture (THE FINAL FRONTIER)

* profiling and identity (The MARK Portraits)

* violence in America (TOKENS, PRECIS, HARBINGERS AND HERALDS, AMERICAN PIE, EIKONS)

Phyllis Gorsen, a Philadelphia based painter, creates contemporary paintings that are a beautiful mixture of abstract and representation. She uses vibrant color and geometric elements blended with figuration. Her work is about how we are all connected through the commonality of everyday elements.
