  6. 6. OK Landscape: from cornfields to oilfieldsBeginning with westward expansionism andcontinuing through the oil boom to today,the landscape of Oklahoma has beenredefined and sculpted by industry. I plan tocreate a series of ten translucent and backlitlandscape paintings that illustrate that historyby choosing sites across Oklahoma where themesh of organic systems and industrialmodification is apparent and depictingthem.
  7. 7. OK Landscape: from cornfields to oilfields Grace titled her work to describe her idea in a simple way. She starts with a big ideaBeginning with westward expansionism andcontinuing through the oil boom to today, thelandscape of Oklahoma has been redefinedand sculpted by industry. I plan to create aseries of ten translucent and backlitlandscape paintings that illustrate that historyby choosing sites across Oklahoma where themesh of organic systems and industrialmodification is apparent and depictingthem. Clear # & type of artworks Explains why this work?
  8. 8. My paintings have always hovered nearabstraction while still retaining their how her work willrepresentational origins. However with grow &this series I would like to allow the works developto dissolve more fully into abstraction,allowing color and gestural line toconvey more feeling than representationalone allows. DetailsWhich is not to say that the paintings about howwon’t be based in representation. By she’ll createhiring local pilots I plan to take aerialphotographs that I can use as a jumpingoff point for expressive, panoramiccompositions. Each painting will be a Details on size &long horizontal, roughly 2’x 4.’ shape
  9. 9. These industrial landscape paintingsrepresent the modification of the NiceOklahoma landscape over time. The detailsmaterials (leaves, industrial mylar, & about materialselectronics) and the composition willwork together to illustrate the complex Why therelationship between the natural world materials are rightand industry inherent in the world for THIStoday. idea!
  10. 10. Additionally I am interested in exploring New ideasthe use of motion detectors such as she’s trying andinfrared sensors to make the paintings whyviewer responsive…. I have alreadybegun experimenting with wiring LEDlights in parallel and series, both rowsand branching patterns. Adding sensorsto the LED lights will open up a world ofpossibilities compositionally. It will allowme to move beyond the static image aswell as surprise and more fully engagethe interested viewer with the paintings.

  12. 12. Margaret Kinkeade: Momentum Spotlight OKC 2012Using the timeless forms of Shaker furniture and craft I intend to create aninstallation, working title “Fragile Stillness and Strength”, in which the viewer canimagine what it would look like if traditionally feminine materials were appliedto masculine craft and vice-versa. I plan to create a Shaker style kitchen tableand two chairs constructed out of translucent, unglazed, slipcast porcelain2x4’s of various lengths. The 2x4’s will be joined together with yarn or twine inthe place of metal screws or nails, creating an unstable and unusablecenterpiece that will be illuminated by the light that passes through it’s unevensurfaces. To create a striking juxtoposition, the ceramic furniture will be flankedby a pair of hanging, backlit, hand-plasmacut steel twin bed sized “quilts”.One of the quilts will showcase the “Wedding Ring” pattern and the other“Rooftop” pattern, both of which I feel represent women’s traditional goal andunderstood private realm. Each quilt will be incised with both the patternstated above and a series of created “fabric scrap patterms”, by using steelthe usefulness of the quilt will be removed in the same vain as the ceramictable and chairs. The use of Shaker style furniture is in part due to theiconographic nature of their forms, but primarily due to the fact that theShakers have always been regarded as an egalitarian society who valuedsimplicity in form and life while always striving to do whatever they choose todo the best that they are able to. What is so interesting to me is that evenwithin a group where men and women are seen as equals in both the publicand private realms women’s work still consists of primarily domestic duties suchas cleaning the home and crafts such as garment construction. Thank you forthe opportunity to apply for Momentum Spotlight and for the chance to have
