"Do I allow people to see me for who I am/or do I expose the part of me/that I think they want to see?"
The question is inscribed atop a page depicted in "Me, All the Time," Deborah Gregg's mixed-media sculpture of a book.
|From Deborah Gregg's solo exhibition, "Inscriptive Manifestations: The Inner Voice"|
The work is one of 24 in "Inscriptive Manifestations: The Inner Voice," her first solo exhibition, which runs through Aug. 18 at the Coral Springs Museum of Art.
Her works, made from found objects, hand-sculpted parts and short journal-like writings, are about the voice inside, the one that remains honest even as we reflect untruths. In "Me, All the Time," she puts it this way: "I am agreeable when I want to be disagreeable, then I feel untruthful to myself."
As an only child, Gregg says her inner voice was her best friend. As an artist, it's an ever-increasing presence in her work. "I'm more of an observer than the life of the party," she says. "That sort of personality tends to keep things inside more than verbalize them." ... Read the rest of Arterpillar's story on Deborah Gregg in the July 15 Lifestyle section of the Sun-Sentinel.
