•Littoral Drift FotoFest Biennial: Discoveries of the Meeting Place
Memphis College of Art
February 26–March 26
Opening reception March 18, 6–8 pm
I’m fortunate to have a second iteration of my solo show Littoral Drift on view now at the Memphis College of Art.
Fredric Koepel reviewed Littoral Drift for the Commercial Appeal.
“The primary example is the magnificent “Littoral Drift #284,” an expansive square arena of many sheets that seems to embody all the mythos and pathos of the human relationship to the oceans that surround us, as well as being a sort of star map to the nebulae and deep space beyond. The fear of the void is here, as well as the gorgeousness of the exhaustive and visceral experience of nature.” -F.Koepel
Produced in conjunction with the exhibition, the catalog Littoral Drift includes thirty plates, images of my process, and an interview with Allie Haeusslein, Associate Director, Pier 24. Strange Fire, a collective dedicated to current social and political forces, featured the catalog interview.
