THE ARTIST LOVES YOU AND GIVES YOU THINGS

The Artist Loves You and Gives You Things, 2003-, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and the World.

The Artist Loves You and Gives You Things attempts to literalize the relationship between

artist and audience. The artist is portrayed as a self-portrait on the surface of a hand made

cast frisbee which is distributed to members of an artistic community. This project began

in the summer of 2003 at Skowhegan. Fifty hand-cast customized plastic Frisbees were

made and exchanged in a game of pass with fellow artists from around the world. The

Frisbee then went back to the respective cities of these artists to be kept in their possession

for an indeterminate time until I am able to retrieve them. Three artists pictured (of fifty)

receive The Artist Loves You and Gives You Things at sites around the Skowhegan artist

residency. Each artist keeps the frisbees until they are able to be retrieved. Currently nearly

half of the 50 editions of The Artist Loves You and Gives You Things have retrieved across

two continents.
