LORRAINE SULLIVAN

I love rust
That blue-green color of an old toilet float
Broken things
Parts of things
Lots of the same thing
Things with numbers and parts of words
Things used to bind other things together
Things used to measure something
Things by the side of the road and
Things washed ashore

LORRAINE SULLIVAN

I love rust
That blue-green color of an old toilet float
Broken things
Parts of things
Lots of the same thing
Things with numbers and parts of words
Things used to bind other things together
Things used to measure something
Things by the side of the road and
Things washed ashore

I collect
Sort
Arrange
And connect forms, surfaces and colors
I set up small relationships and then
Try to fit them into larger relationships
There is no big plan
It’s more like a puzzle
I work several at the same time
And when it’s “right” I’ll know it

I rearrange
Now this thing reminds me of . . .
It makes me think of something else
This could be used to . . .
It looks as if it once worked
But in some mysterious way

I am making something new
From objects of uncertain provenance
Their purpose often a mystery
And yet together they look so familiar
It looks like it has been here all long
I just never saw it before

From another place
Another time
Something new
