Possession, pop-up exhibition by Jaye Schlesinger

Possession evolved in response to Ann Arbor artist Jaye Schlesinger’s interest in mindfulness and minimalism and the role they play in personal well being. After disposing (selling, recycling, giving away) of everything that no longer served to enrich her life, Schlesinger decided to merge this exercise with her art practice and depicted all of her remaining possessions in small oil paintings, 380 in total. The paintings depict objects of functionality and ones of beauty, eliciting contemplation and conversation about the ‘stuff’ we choose to live with.
