'Thiab yog, npau suav nruab hnub SurRender 'los ntawm Helen Hughes yog plaub qhov kev nthuav qhia los ntawm Naomi Draper, uas tab tom ua haujlwm nyob rau ob xyoos ntawm Roscommon Arts Center. 'Thiab Yog lawm, daydreamer SurRender' yog qhov txawv txav hauv Hughes txoj kev xyaum. Txawm hais tias qhov kev nthuav qhia muaj ntau yam haujlwm uas ntau dua ntawm nws txoj kev sib raug zoo-tsav cov duab puab, lwm tus tau tsim nrog cov neeg koom tes sab nraud ntawm nws lub studio, nrog rau cov ntaub ntawv no tsuas yog ib feem ntawm nws txhais tes. 

Hughes txoj kev coj ua feem ntau cuam tshuam nrog cov txheej txheem ntawm kev koom nrog cov khoom lag luam uas tsis muaj zog, muaj siab xav thiab tsis yooj yim rau kev tswj, xws li balloons, ceev nrooj resins thiab foams. Lub txiaj ntsig artworks ua raws li cov ntaub ntawv ntawm peb-dimensional slippage; ib tug dynamic flux ua manifest, visceral thiab mysterious. Lawv yog cov tshwm sim ntawm ib tug txheej txheem ntawm improvisation ntawm cov artist thiab nws cov ntaub ntawv - sculptural khoom ntes nyob rau hauv ib lub sij hawm ntawm kev hloov, ob qho tib si ruaj thiab kua.

Qhov kev nthuav qhia no muaj cov haujlwm ua haujlwm nrog cov kws tshaj lij sab nraud, koom nrog cov thev naus laus zis niaj hnub thiab cov txheej txheem. Nws koom ua ke ua haujlwm hauv iav, tooj liab, tshuab tsim Styrofoam, 3D luam ntawv thiab kev ua haujlwm augmented kev muaj tiag. Ob peb ntawm cov kev sib koom tes no nthuav tawm lossis ua kom zoo nkauj cov txheej txheem thev naus laus zis, suav nrog Photogrammetry - txheej txheem uas suav nrog kev thaij duab sib tshooj ntawm ib qho khoom lossis qauv thiab hloov mus rau 2D lossis 3D cov qauv digital. Lub rooj nthuav qhia ua ke ua yeeb yaj kiab thiab digital luam tawm ntawm Photogrammetry mapping txheej txheem. Hughes nthuav tawm tus qauv 3D hauv nws daim ntawv tsis tiav, nthuav tawm nws cov qauv hauv kab sib txuas, thiab cov duab ntawm ntau qhov kev ua tiav ntawm cov txheej txheem khaws cov ntaub ntawv.

Qhov kev ua haujlwm no thiab cov txheej txheem tsim tawm implicit suav nrog cov khoom siv rov qab los ntawm kev tsim cov peev txheej ntawm kev tsim khoom thiab ntau lawm. Los ntawm nws cov kev cuam tshuam, tus kws kos duab nug cov latent zoo thiab zais qhov chaw ntawm cov khoom. Tshwj xeeb tshaj yog, nws nug txog yuav ua li cas nws improvised, tib neeg kev koom tes nrog cov khoom siv hloov pauv peb txoj kev nkag siab ntawm nws lub peev xwm, thiab qhov no txawv li cas los ntawm kev sib koom ua ke ntawm cov txheej txheem kev lag luam. 

Qhov cuam tshuam ntawm cov txheej txheem tshiab no ua rau muaj kev sib txawv sib txawv tshwm sim. Nws cov duab kos tau hloov pauv cov ntaub ntawv hauv kev lag luam tab sis yeej tsis lees paub tag nrho lawv cov kev siv ib txwm siv, yog li ua qhov kev sib txuas ntawm cov kws kos duab thiab ntau haiv neeg. Hughes pom qhov no yog hom kev nthuav dav ntawm cov txheej txheem kev lag luam. Nws paub qhov twg qhov xwm txheej los yog qhov xwm txheej tshwm sim hauv kev tsim khoom thiab tuav cov peev txheej no, thaum lees paub qhov zoo nkauj detritus nws tsim.

Tsis ntev los no tus kws tshaj lij kos duab uas tuag lawm Dave Hickey tau hais tias "Qhov saj tsis zoo yog qhov saj tiag tiag, tau kawg, thiab saj zoo yog qhov seem ntawm lwm tus muaj cai." Txawm hais tias Hickey tau hais txog cov qauv tsim txiaj uas peb coj los rau kev koom tes hauv kev kos duab, ib tus tuaj yeem siv cov lus hais no rau Hughes kev koom tes nrog cov ntaub ntawv, txij li nws txoj haujlwm nug txog kev sib koom ua ke ntawm cov khoom siv thiab tsim cov qauv hierarchical. Nws cov kev cuam tshuam yog kev cuam tshuam lossis kev hloov pauv ntawm cov khoom siv tus cwj pwm, uas nyob rau hauv lem nug seb qhov no cuam tshuam li cas ntawm cov khoom muaj cai. 

'Thiab Yog lawm, daydreamer SurRender' ua rau muaj kev sib tham zoo siab tshwm sim ntawm cov ntaub ntawv, txheej txheem, cov cim thiab qhov chaw. Nws yog kev txhawb nqa ntawm cov thev naus laus zis niaj hnub no; txawm li cas los xij ntau ntawm cov kev txhawj xeeb ntawm kev nthuav qhia kuj yog qhov tseeb thiab niaj hnub. Cov ntaub ntawv sau ua ke nug cov ntaub ntawv hierarchies thiab peev, nrog rau kev sib raug zoo ntawm cov ntaub ntawv thiab nruab nrab ntawm lub cev thiab kev sib raug zoo. 

Lub rooj nthuav qhia muaj xws li cov khoom siv xiav xiav zoo li lub npas, tsau rau ntawm phab ntsa, uas zoo li muaj qee qhov kev hloov pauv los ua peb daim ntawv sib txuas. Qhov kev ua haujlwm zoo li muaj cov khoom viscous ntws los ntawm nws lub hauv paus uas tau raug ntes nyob rau hauv stasis. Ob leeg seductive thiab disconcerting, nws yog ib tug exquisitely tsis meej pem sculptures uas ua rau ib tug txawv qhov txawv ntawm qhov pom thiab lub siab. Qhov no pom tau tias tsis muaj qhov hnyav yog qhov tseeb, ib qho tshuaj pleev xim rau tooj liab thiab yog qhov qhia tau tias muaj kev sib cav sib ceg ntawm kev ua si hauv 'Thiab Yog, daydreamer SurRender'. Cov haujlwm uas tau nthuav tawm no yog kev ncaj ncees thiab dag ntxias, tiag tiag thiab dag; lawv ua siab dawb tso cai rau peb koom nrog kev sib tham yav dhau los ntawm cov ntaub ntawv thiab cov kws kos duab tes.
