Installation View of the Terminal Moraine exhibition
2013
Mixed Media Installation

The terminal moraine is the last point of glacial progress: the debris left once the ice has receded; the geographic mass that remains with its various sources and origins. For Welch, the mass is a composite of histories and edited forms, arranged in a context with many possible readings. An expansion of Welch’s established sensibility, the exhibition applies themes of scale, time, perception, form and intimacy to modes of reflection and understanding. Terminal Moraine further serves as a meditation on the complex co-dependency between the artist’s solitary experimentation and his role as a presenter.

The pieces in this exhibit are not to be taken as a retrospective, but offer choices of proximity and placement in a space – they do not dwell on each work’s original conceptual foundation or design. Each “formation” has a relationship with its neighbor within the environment, exerting itself in a present whose past is an echo. Relationships form. Each grouping maintains its rudimentary constituent characteristics, but due to a separation of time assumes a new identity and energy. Welch’s choices in the remaking are also mediated. The introduction of new media, objects, and ways of working have been subjected to innumerable external forces and reconsiderations. The communication with the viewer remains open-ended insofar as there is no expectation of her/his relationship to the works’ origins, except for what might already be understood: that our shared framework is the result of actual and metaphorical individual histories. Each work channels the speck of sand, the cluster of rocks, the beach, the island, or the person, which in the face of inertia are deposited on a landscape of inevitable permutation.

So On

Over the course of a fortnight and a half, I’ve seen people shot--some dead—through a pane of flickering glass; read a few stories about ice shelves melting beyond expectations and antecedents, and of poisonous water’s shadowy bureaucratic origins; studied the mortality rates beneath earthquake data; given away the garden’s first strawberry; heard spun intimate tales of green fields and free ranging horses; listened to bilious speech, shit speech, who-the-fuck knows speech as it issued from the rotten body of tics and polls; seen folks don heavy make-up and save a country; read a critical book with solipsism at its unknowing core; lingered on a friend’s friend’s suicidal end; participated in symbiotic orgasm (I hope she did too); sat through a pitch for someone else’s god/passed on it; watched a lady a-giggle sell guns via the home-shopping channel; been pleased to learn the bankers, after so much suffering, are finally doing fine; watched a woman overcome the overwhelming odds of an angry mob to reach a public restroom; considered my neighbor’s medical history; drunk and eaten to Dionysian excess at the expense of sleep and prayer; regretted negative spaces I’ve nurtured, such as blood donation and child welfare; failed horribly; listened and ignored…

And So On is as such. Here are some new pieces and some old—hopefully seen here in a new light. They are drafts of thoughts and insecurities, of fear, pride, violence and envy. Athleticism and torpor.

The past and the present are always a paint-flecked “now” to the artist. Nothing here feeds the hungry, or changes political will, or puts an end to art, or halts the terrible human urges to kill, win, amass, or flee. These are humble disparate works—made and displayed in a short burst of planning and action—and which equal an approximation. For you, for me, for us.

And for that fucking asshole who stabbed me in the back.
