This ordinary mind is broken
Delio Delgado

July 2 - 28
Opening Reception:  Friday, July 2nd, 8 pm


The blueprints, found in the garbage of architectural firms at various sites in the Golden Horseshoe area, function as support for pigments and medium, and they provide the primed ground for a many-layered narrative.  As discarded architectural plans, the blueprints bear the weight of their actual or potential consequences on the region that they describe, be it St. Catharine’s, the Town of Wheatfield, or Colonial Avenue in Tonawanda.  Blueprints map a selected site, but they do more than mark existing geographic features or infrastructure; they offer an illusion of what may or may not develop.  Reclaiming the plans rejected by others, I mark my own reflections on events that affect my daily life.  I read the blueprints as visual tropes, serving as “disinformation” and propaganda in terms of location, a constant exploration of the world rubbed in our noses through daily confrontation with wars of all sorts.
