Panel Talk at SGCi Atlanta 2017

troy
I will be speaking as a part of a panel, Co-Terminus: Sculpture & Space Through Print, during the SGCi; the national printmaking conference. Chaired by Patrick Vincent, this panel embraces the way paper and print aesthetics have been incorporated into installation and sculptural forms; discussing the way print media is integrated and coterminous with physical environments. Panelists Camilla Taylor, Tonja Torgerson, and Leslie Friedman will discuss works that cut space with paper, create new graphic forms, and impress bare walls with ink and matrix.

Currently Nontraditional- Lawrence Arts Center

costoflivingThe artists in this exhibition new work in response to their thoughts about aspects of what 2016 means to them. Representing a wide range of experience, and techniques, these artists operate outside of the perceived traditional artist track. This exhibition celebrates the diversity of their approaches towards creating art as well as their varied attitudes toward the world –as long as they could confine these to a 30×22 sheet of paper.

Participating artists: Jason Barr, Janet Davidson Hues, Patrick Giroux , Lora Jost, Leslie Kuluva, Judith G. Levy, Adam Lott , Tom Moore , Jeremy Rockwell, Tonja Torgerson, Dave Van Hee, Beatrice Von Holten

Something Fleeting- University of Kansas

The Fall (detail), mixed media installation, 2016

I have recreated “The Fall” for an exhibition at the University of Kansas. The artists in this exhibition work directly or indirectly with the transient & fleeting. They explore this idea through material, process, or content. A moment, a body, a conversation, a landscape, a culture, a life … these things change, evolve, vanish, grow, get lost, or transform into something new.

Artists: Andrew Cho, Ann Dean, Neil Goss, Tressa Jones, Alicia Kelly, Amanda Maciuba, Cate Richards, Carly Slade, Kyla Strid, and Tonja Torgerson.
