Momentum Tulsa opens a week from tomorrow. I'm going to Tulsa this weekend to begin putting my installation together (the most exciting part!). Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition and Invisible Arts put together this great preview video on the Spotlight artists for this year's Momentum Tulsa exhibition. It overviews my project, as well as the other two Spotlight Artists and the work they are creating for the show. After watching this, I'm even more excited about seeing their projects in completion than I was already! Check it out..
I've been hinting around enough, but haven't actually officially announced my recent big news... Earlier this summer I submitted a proposal and was selected to be one of three Spotlight Artists for the Momentum Tulsa exhibition that will open in October! This is a huge honor and I am so thankful to Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition and the curators, Emily Kern and Krystle Brewer, for this amazing opportunity!
You will find out more about my project, an installation entitled "Saprobia", as the weeks go on. I plan to continue posting workspace snippets and progress photos. This project has already pushed me to try out new techniques and media that I have not worked with before, which has been both enlightening and inspiring.
I'm excited to share more about my installation, the individual pieces that will be a part of it, and the greater concept that it embodies. For now, here are a couple of images from recent stages.
