My installation “Tethered Tensions” at the Phoenix Art Museum runs through September 17th, 2017. Comprised of 500ft of my own spun hair, hundreds of small mirrors and tethered to six futuristic fossilized concrete sculptures, the work envelopes its 15ft x 17ft enclosed room. This walk-in installation explores unease, intrigue and fragility between humanness, technology and ecology.
Each year, Contemporary Forum, A Phoenix Art Museum Support Organization (CF) fosters the creation of contemporary art by awarding grants to emerging artists working in Arizona. The recipients are selected by a jury in a competitive process from a pool of applicants who respond to an annual open call. Funds for the Artists Grants Program are made available through the Nathan Cummings Foundation with matching funds from Contemporary Forum. The work of the 2016 Contemporary Forum Artists Grant winners will be exhibited in the Lewis and Anderman Galleries. These Artists Grants Recipients are: David Emitt Adams, Christine Cassano, Bryan David Griffith, Constance McBride and Mary Meyer.
