Flow II
Valerie McCaffrey
9 Brown Stained Plaster Tiles In Frame
18” x 18”

While working on “Flow,” the first series of plaques, I intentionally–therefore consciously–decided that I would de-emphasize the talking and narrative part of my brain while emphasizing the flowing, non-narrative side. It is really fun to have a physical expression of that process.

Nobody would ever choose to live during a pandemic. It is certainly an event that most would, if given a chance, opt out of. But the pandemic ensued. Its forced slowing down and the resulting introspection had some wonderful gifts for me. I used this time to lean into some of the themes I had been previously mulling over and developing in the studio. The theme of consciousness, in all its various forms, intrigued me. Terms such as unconscious, subconscious, and doing something “with” consciousness or “all encompassing” consciousness attracted me like a magnet. – Valerie McCaffrey, 2022
