I love Chad Wys unique and conceptual art work. He as been in focus around the world and growing “As my voice has grown stronger, with ideas and critiques, I have found the prospect of sharing experiences through art quite advantageous. Through the reflexive extension of my own personal exploration of the field, many of the conversations in my work are about art itself. What does art mean to me? What purpose does it serve in my life and in the lives of others? What are the “boundaries” of the art experience? Are there any?” (Chad Wys – 2012)
Is doubts, its progress can be felt in is work always taking it a little further than before, with an unique touch.
“…with the re-contextualization of decorative art objects. By retooling the object and then re-presenting it before the viewer I intend to add new layers to the conversation that takes place between the observer and the object in its original state. By reclaiming these objects I mean to acknowledge how our possessions (can/do) define us. In so many innumerable ways the bric-a-brac of our lives becomes a unit of measure of our own worth—I wish to subvert this measure. I enjoy infiltrating this territory of being and I revel in pointing to the superficial and the wonderfully imperfect character traits in all of us.” (Chad Wys – 2012)
“A major strand throughout much of my artwork, beyond the broader inquirers into what art means socially, is the notion of object: object ownership, objectification of history, objectification of people, objectification of artwork and its many mediums; objectification of aesthetic pleasure; etc. I often explore/exploit the idea of objecthood: how we decorate our lives with arbitrary, as well as meaningful, things; how we objectify the ones we love and the strangers we see; how we objectify pain and death; how we objectify complex and sensitive cultural histories. I’m also deeply interested in understanding the reception of art, the reception of objects, and how extrinsic and intrinsic influences affect individuals’ reception of the visuality they experience.” (Chad Wys – 2012)
