My friend Frank McEntire is exhibiting a group of works called "reli-QUERY" in the Nox Contemporary Gallery in Salt Lake.
In a book published in conjunction with the one-man show, Frank has included an essay of mine called "The Other Side of the Limit. The book is titled "The Destructible Object and Other Essays: The Sculptural Work of Frank McEntire." It includes six essays and a lot of photos of Frank's work.
Below is the first page of my essay. To the right is a flagstone walk I laid on the north side of our house a couple of weeks ago.
Both the walkway and the essay are things I have made. Both constructions required concentration and some skill and considerable effort. Both have a form that wouldn't have existed without me. Both make me feel like I have done something, made something.
