My contribution to this group exhibition includes a new double-projection video and related series of photographs from my ongoing project, Mountainfield Studies.  This work was comprised from material obtained during research residencies in Ólafsfjörður, Iceland at Listhús í Fjallabyggðis in June of 2014, and The Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada in February of 2015. The Florida Prize in Contemporary Art is an initiative of the Orlando Museum of Art that brings a new level of recognition to the State’s most progressive artists.

2016 Faculty Biennial at Cornell Fine Arts Museum

May 2, 2016

On view April 16th – May 15th, 2016

Included in this exhibition is a new work, The Sunshine Bores | The Daylights, which takes the form of a single-channel video with audio and composite photograph that builds upon earlier projects (The Tree Alone and The Weight of Centuries) that respond to Virginia Woolf’s novel, The Waves.  Artist and musician Rachel Blumberg contributed audio tracks to the video work. Having formed a much admired friendship with Blumberg during my decade in Portland, Oregon in the 1990’s, this collaborative aspect is an important link to the complicated relationship between loss and nostalgia in The Waves.

Also included in this exhibition is new work by Josh Almond, Rose Casterline, Dana Hargrove and Rachel Simmons. Find out  more HERE.
