"Become aware of internal, subjective, subverbal experiences, so that these experiences can be brought into the world of abstraction, of conversation, of naming, etc. with the consequence that it immediately becomes possible for a certain amount of control to be exerted over these hitherto unconscious and uncontrollable processes."
Members of subverbal hold a deeply rooted self-motivation for artmaking in the contemporary world. We embrace the truth of materials, and connect our making to our relationships with land, body, gender, consumer culture, and temporality. Subverbal exists to support each other, to seek connections with other emerging art professionals, to build community, and to provide a space for critique and dialogue. In bringing together our separate creative practices, the work of the collective itself becomes an artwork. As artists, teachers, and arts professionals, Subverbal hopes to enrich not only our own endeavors, but also the creative life of our community.
