Full Stop at the McNay
Full Stop is an installation by Tom Burckhardt, currently on view at the McNay. It is a life-size, imagined art studio made of only cardboard, paint & hot glue. The space is filled with all sorts of fantastic details to absorb; a shelf stacked with books I wish you could pick up & read, art supplies everywhere you look and art historical references throughout the room. As you walk through, you are confronted by a blank canvas, waiting for inspiration to strike. It's an installation that is accessible, familiar and skillfully done using a medium associated with foundation design courses. I loved it. It is on view through April 10 at the McNay in San Antonio, Texas.
