'self-congratulatory nonsense' (Arts & Culture - UT Arlington and Community)
self-congratulatory nonsense is a solo installation by Joshua Elliott. All art stands on the embers of an old idea, waiting to be consumed by a change in social tide. We spend our lives filling white rooms with personal furies, childhood intimations, and portrayals of imposed self-importance. Walls become tightly packed with alternate realities, lit with sterile beams of hope. It is a place unregulated and impossibly personal.
We project an image of ourselves in the mirror each morning, mentally masking and emotionally processing, as we see fit. The change for better or for worse is inevitable. It is the time between that change which interests me most.
