‘Oscillates Wildly’ by William J. O’Brien

Chicago artist William J. O’Brien’s current exhibition at the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft features almost 90 work in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture and textiles. Organized by KMAC curator Joey Yates, O’Brien is exactly the type of artist the museum likes to promote, as its motto is “Art is the Big Idea. Craft is the Process.” Yates said, “In our modern lexicon of creative activity, O’Brien is commonly considered a maker, someone who is engaged in a thoughtful, physically rigorous and oftentimes improvisational approach to materiality and process. In this effort, William J. O’Brien offers a prime example of the role craft plays in the critical dialogue about contemporary art, which the KMAC exhibition program explores.”
