Artist Statement

“These are the definitions I work with. Drawing, an arrangement of marks on a surface. Painting, an arrangement of paint on a surface. Sculpture, an arrangement of objects in space. Conceptualism, an arrangement of ideas. Arrange, to move and organize (things) into a particular order or position, to give a particular order or position to the parts of (something). Mark, an impression made on something. Using these definitions, we can then arrive at this definition; Art, an arrangement of things. Using mass-produced objects and ordinary materials reconfigured into an art context, I explore themes that include the idea of an objects’ potential and the concepts of what could be versus what is.”

Changarreando expands the reach of the artist by presenting their gallery online, while allowing the option to sell merch over Instagram and receive 100% of the sale.

Robert Jackson Harrington featured his artwork on the Changarrito cart outside the Museum’s entrance on May 11th and 19th, 2019.
