Jean-Marc Superville Sovak
Beacon, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: What would Carl Andre do if he were part black? Or Ed Ruscha if he were raised bilingual? Like Andre or Ruscha, I am an abstract artist, as abstract as any concept of race or written form of language. Like these artists, I am deeply suspicious of illusionism, I am a materialist; I am more interested in the experiential than the informational, experience as real as racism and as physical as the voice in my throat. The challenge of colliding the personal-is-political discourse with the legacy of conceptual and minimalist art practices is what motivates me. As a multiracial, multilingual artist, the consequences of some illusions are too real to neglect, and some words matter too much. In my work, what I try to do is make matter out of ideas that matter.
