September 5 – December 8, 2016 I will be in a (Un)common Space(s), a group exhibition with eight other artists. The exhibit broadly examines the relationship between natural, constructed and decaying space at the Spartanburg Art Museum, Spartanburg, SC. As the health and well-being of our planet continues to decline, viewers are challenged to consider such themes as the loss of natural resources, the lack of interaction between humanity and nature, and the decay of urban landscapes. The works on view range from dynamic urban landscape paintings on non-traditional surfaces, to documentary photography, to incorporating detritus from abandoned rural sites in mixed- media and encaustic works. These materials and techniques contribute to the visual conversation that balances between permanence and impermanence.
