About

Where do we come from? Where are we going? What the hell is going on here? 2017-2018 Hand cut paper in wood box Gil Scullion’s conceptual text-based work has been featured in exhibitions at Real Art Ways, Hartford, CT, the De Cordova Museum in Lincoln, MA, the New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, CT, P.S.1 in Long Island City, NY, the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, CT and the Housatonic Museum of Art in Bridgeport, CT. Scullion has been adjunct at the Graduate Liberal Studies Program at Wesleyan University, and is currently at Manchester Community College, in Manchester, CT. Each of the phrases that make up the project, Where do we come from? Where are we going? What the hell is going on here?, was chosen due to its reference to a sensation of existential vertigo. Hope and having is mingled with loss and remorse. It must be acknowledged that these phrases resemble the Truisms by Jenny Holzer. Having lived in New York City at the time when Holzer’s Truisms were being pasted on walls and lampposts in Lower Manhattan, Scullion clearly cannot plead ignorance. However, it is the artist’s hope that the aphorism was not exhausted as a form by Holzer’s project. In her work each Truism exists as a general statement or principle uttered by an anonymous authority. Through scale and materials, Gil Scullion feels that phrase is no longer addressed to the public at large but individually and intimately to the viewer. It is this quality that makes the project appropriate to the flat file format.
