Jaynie Crimmins
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick



ARTIST STATEMENT: Creating in series, my works extract alternative narratives from the raw materials I mine. My medium is the proliferation of promotional mailings from government representatives, non-profit and political organizations in addition to consumerist advertising and bills. I shred these mailings to generate elements that are uniform in size, assigning equal importance to all the shreds. I then subject them to a rigorous practice of separating colors, rolling or sewing the shreds and commingling specific mailings. The fragments, past the point of re-assemblage, still reveal bits of text, imagery, envelopes, and colors; traces of their cultural origins. Once a means of direct communication, my manipulation of these materials obscure their messages to promote my own.
