Travis Head, Journals and Reading Lists (solo exhibition)
Journals and Reading Lists features recent work by Professor Travis Head that is autobiographical and utilizes drawing that is, in the words of the artist, “mediated by technology and entertainment.” This blending of the personal with the narrative and digital conventions of video games, for example, are contained within bound journals covering a period of months or years. His Reading Lists function as journals but notin the sequential pages of a book but as accumulations of experiences on a single page such as his Quilt Squares project. Started in November of 2015, the drawings reference the barn quilts that Travis Head sees driving country roads around his home in Blacksburg, Virginia.
