"We live in a state of constant flux and communication, yet this hyper-connectivity somehow feels more disconnected than times when we had less options and ways to communicate. I see a lot of people making artwork out of this place - disconnected objects, fragmentations, deconstructions - but without the actual answer or response or cure or even recognition of this feeling. The artworks are considered 'progressive' but are themselves disconnected and fragmented, without any real acknowledgment of that fact. So even though they may be a 'sign of the times', they also just tend to blend blandly with the background becoming sterile purposeless objects. For Ambulance Blues, I wanted to include works that went beyond this idea of progressive. The artists included understand what it means to create a relic of a difficult world in flux with the desire to refocus our attention to something better. There is a real sadness and loneliness in recognizing this disconnected feeling and the works here evoke this. Even further, the works exhibit continuous movement beyond this by reaching towards something sublime. Good art is about knowing and feeling that you live in a fucked up world but still being able to pull out the good human parts and point towards them."
