'New Work by MoHA's August Artist in Residence Wade Schaming
Wade Schaming's sculptures are painstakingly assembled solely through processes of stacking. The materials remain unchanged – used as is/found – and are unfixed to each other: as such, he creates delicate juxtapositions perilously balanced, like thought given concrete form. From discarded and forgotten objects which memorialize hope, the assembled forms aspire to return dignity to the bearer and evoke empathy in the viewer. Schaming's process is site-specific and confined to the present moment: because the artist works only with found and discarded materials (nothing he uses is purchased), his pieces reflect their origins while reinforcing a desire to create impermanence.
