Rianna Sprague 

I am a Chicago based Mixed Media and Installation artist. 

 

I rely on the understanding of art history as my context.

I am seduced by knowledge. I am seduced by art. I am entangled by art.

 

I rely on the understanding of economics as my context.

I am lower class. I have felt the value of material. I have felt the pride of ownership.

 

I rely on the understanding of color as my signifier.

I am seduced by ready-made color created by industrial processes.

 

I rely on the understanding of materials as my signifier.

I am seduced by processed material; the something nameable but not placed.  I am seduced by the possible, the mundane.

 

Art is my means of giving back to the culture that has produced me.
