This installation was created in a 4-and-a-half-day period as a part of a weeklong project-based artist residency at Texas Tech University. From February 27th to March 2nd, 2023, I worked to transform the 806 Collective Space at the Charles Adams Studio Project into Dissolution, a dystopic Garden of Eden filled with images of flora, insects, and decomposing figures.
The results of the project were on view to the public in Studio C at CASP during the March 3rd First Friday Art Trail. This project was presented by the Printmaking Area of the TTU School of Art with support from the John T. & Ryla F. Lott Endowment for Excellence in the Visual Arts, and in collaboration with the 806 Collective and the Charles Adams Studio Project.
Special Thanks to Sangmi Yoo, Dave Clayton, and Hannah for their help with the project, to the 806 Collective for the use of their space, and to the legacy of Peter Keltz.
