When craft and critique become tools: Readymades sculptural works by Chad Wys

As an undergrad, Chad Wys divided his studies between literature and art history before delving into the realm of Visual Culture as a graduate at Illinois State. The critique of images and the philosophy of art have punctuated his years, with an interdisciplinary eye toward the ways we use signs and symbols (words and images) to communicate, as well as interpret, ideas.

“My approach to creative mediums, like my approach to the concepts that challenge my understanding, are varied and experimental to the point of pastiche. The collage that happens when materials are juxtaposed, or when theories are examined through new, overlapping lenses, constitutes my personal and professional passions. Craft and critique—as verbs and nouns—are themselves my tools as well as my subjects”
