About the Artist: 

Joey Slaughter, an artist working out of Ruston, Louisiana, is an Associate Professor of Art at Louisiana Tech University. He creates abstractions from conversation, as if you could see sound waves from analogue and digital devices passing through and around people. Slaughter has exhibited widely throughout the US in both solo and group exhibitions.

Artist’s Statement About the Exhibition:

Everyone I know says they are busy, tired, and have a lot to balance. This show examines moving forward staying positive and appreciating living in this current moment. The work in Things Are Heavy range from poured paint skin collages to colorful rounded sculptures. The sculptures are attached to hand trucks as a way to show the potential of finding balance and finding helpful ways to move and navigate.
