Josh Schaedel & Sandee McGee

In Series 26, sequences of what could be documented patterns or randomly captured ‘blips of paint and light’ build into the contours of a defined, if fragile sense of place. Artists Josh Schaedel and Sandee McGee present an 8-entry succession of snapshot minimalist arrangements and slightly surreal scenes that appear as the coding-in-progress arrival at some clearly recognizable location in memory. The ultimate reveal is a kind of suggestive membrane encasement, a structure not so much womb-like in nature as resembling a thinly held together interior made of illumined paper. Origins of the series aside, whether interpreted as questionable pattern or chaotic sampling, the final result is a distilled and controlled environment in which to begin and create again.

The mystery of the series lies not in the attempt to pin down how points plotted on what resembles a half-formed graph can lead through a cast of off-kilter banal images toward a familiar space. Rather, it is the strange inevitability of such an outcome that gives the collaborative work weight and lingering presence. Points of paint transmogrify into actual nails. Scraps of tissue paper become reminiscent of rumpled bed sheets, and vice versa. Schaedel and McGee suggest that what we both conjure as our art practice and build materially into our very personal ‘home lives’ comes from the most ephemeral and disparate of findings — and we do so systematically, no matter how far-reaching and constant the variation, writing on the blank walls as we go.
