ARTIST STATEMENT
Cullen Washington, Jr.

In both the Untitled series and the No-things series, I try to
capture a snapshot of things before they are formed, still in an embryonic state of meaning, forming multiple fluid relationships. The possibilities in this place of ‘in-between’ness interests me. The works take on new directions, meanings and interpretations, and allow for a more open conversation to take place between the work and the viewer, unencumbered by a descriptive title.
