About my work:
Coffelt Artist Statement Primarily, my work involves ideas of chaos from order and order from chaos through historical and personal context.rnI am informed by existing aesthetic constructs that can be historically referenced. Opportunity is imbued the viewer to continue conversations of past, present, and on-going dialogs of aesthetic theory to uniquely personal levels. By nuancing my work with color, construct, and composition, I empower the viewer's involvement allowing them to give form to the indiscriminate areas that evolve in my work. I am passionate about ideas that inform.rnrnrnCurrently with my "Circuitry" series, I explore new technologies concerning duct-tape. I subvert it by utilizing it alongside traditional vellum. Although there is an inherent awkwardness of these mediums, at least in terms of their respective caches and Ideologies, fundamentally they meld well. rnrnThe premise here is to investigate the world of computer motherboards. Arrangements that are hard-edge and unforgiving and to interpret them to make them look and feel more accepting, drawing the viewer into a dialog with this arrangement in terms of what it becomes when the duct-tapes' structurally, pliable nature melds with the semi-transparency of a vellum substrate. The work becomes at once softer, warmer, and less predictable, allowing the viewer to continue dialog by going within the structures to explore further relationships to them. This linear based work overtly suggests organic structuring in spacial arrangements of thickness and thinness, from the very strong lines to the very tenuous. rnrnThis marriage between duct-tape and vellum is total debauchery in every way. The play on materials, textures and colors further my notion of opposition in each and every way giving the viewer a sense of control in positive and negative space within this multi-layering and sometimes grafting of colors and textures and different ideologies inflating the notion of a universe where subversives become part of the fabric of what is a known truth but instead of causing it to unravel, they make weaker parts stronger.
