Sculpture in the Quarter Gallery

The piece that stood out most to me was a piece titled "Containment" by Laura Nelson. The piece was a wooden shelf that had about 20 jars filled with a random assortment of items. Some of the jars contained, buttons, pins, coins, paper clips, and a bunch of other little trinkets. This piece stood out to me because it made me think about what the artist was trying to convey. I think Laura was trying to convey the idea that everyone is obsessed with possessions and that we all have a desire to hold on to these possessions despite them being completely irrelevant. The piece also made me think of an old man or woman who spends their time collecting these little unimportant trinkets for their own personal enjoyment. I really enjoyed this piece because it was simple, yet it had a unique message.
