Like The Phantom, the image resides in an unattainable space. It must catch a linen, a canvas, or a parchment to be revealed. The Phantom dances before the eye, cloth wavering, but all that is seen is its cloak under which it is shrouded. The medium, the sheet may be pulled away for a grand exposure, but nothing is to be found beneath. The apparition dissipates. 

A leaf decomposes but might its image, its form, meander among the phantoms until it is assigned a painting or drawing to bear it? Its objecthood is reinstated. Perhaps the artist, the composer, the maker, is not an inventor; perhaps form is discovered, plucked from the air like the wind chime’s song.

Cameron Hawkey, Katie Holden, and Nicholas Strobelt are three young artists who chiefly consider themselves image-makers, but their practice often concerns the object and context of the pictures they make. Unlike the discreet edge of the framed picture, the works in Pulling Sheet from Phantom engage their immediate network of objects and take on strong sculptural attributes. For these artists, it appears that the delineation between the sculpture and image do not lie within a dichotomy but a rhizomatic network. The mechanisms and qualities of each taxonomy can be applied to the other: vise versa and tit for tat. 

Pulling Sheet from Phantom will be the first official exhibition in B10, The Pacific Northwest College of Art’s new student-run exhibition space.
