Overland Art Program Curator, Tamra Collins, recently sat with current Overland Art Program artist Larry Graeber to discuss materials, value, and the cosmos.
To listen to Larry’s interview in full, press the “►” at the top of the blog post.
"We’re curious about the vastness of the space that we live in as well as our intimate selves."
"I got particularly intrigued with convergences. I’m just fascinated how they happen over and over again, historically, personally, just all sorts of encounters."
"We seem to be more involved in generational evolvement, and materials also have generational life spans, it seems. So I’m not so terribly concerned about whether the material has a permanence or not. If it’s important or if it has any value, it’ll be saved one way or another."
"…to be able to get out to West Texas and to see that expanse is really, really amazing. It slows my life down, I deliberately wanna make work while I’m out there though."
"I love the form of architecture, I love the role that architecture plays in society. I think it’s probably one of the most valuable roles. It reaches the gamut of aesthetics, to function and philosophy, that is really compelling."
