I spend a lot of time thinking about how we arrive at the truths we do. Come Clean is intended to question the nature of our respective constructed myths of past partners and past lives. Familiarity and purpose in arrangement, materiality and form come to be a sort of reflection on the ways in which we go about sorting and categorizing personal interactions.
Angela Caldera is a Wisconsin based artist interested in patterns of interaction, communication and thinking. Her sculptural works focus on process, using the physical manipulation of both object and material as a way to explore personal systems of association. Through the act of making, arranging, and tending, Caldera creates abstract models of what these fluctuating systems look like in her world. Her process reflects upon the continuous reinterpretation of the relationship between construction and chance, between reason and intuition. Caldera received her BFA in ceramics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2012.
