College for Creative Studies’ Center Galleries presents - “Director’s Choice: Obsession”

Featuring: Robert Bielat (Detroit) Martin Brief (St. Louis) James O. Clark (New York) Larry Cressman (Ann Arbor) Michelle Hinebrook (New York) Sally Schluter Tardella (Detroit) I refuse to give up my obsession. – Allen Ginsberg Take the psychobabble out of the term and obsession implies a compelling motivation or preoccupation. “Director’s Choice: Obsession” offers work by six artists whose motivations are diverse but whose fixation on the curious trifles inherent to process and ideas is central to their practice (Sherlock Holmes, after all, believed there is nothing more important than trifles). Whether it’s in persistent mark-making, a romance with materials, or an unrelenting conceptual investigation, the artist’s passion is, as the critic Vince Carducci recently observed, “what great art is all about: an obsessive-compulsive vision quest for creative nirvana.” This exhibition, the third in a series celebrating Center Galleries’ 20th anniversary and my 10th as director, is a chance to re-visit old favorites, celebrate new discoveries, take the pulse of my current interests, and offer a playful take on obsession – the artist’s and mine.
