New Artwork

SF No. 38, American Alps, Part 1 , 2018, acrylic on photograph, 28.5 x 32.375 inches

Featured this week is the artwork SF No. 38, American Alps, Part 1. This six-part series works with found photographs by photographer Peter Fordham of a town in the Swiss Alps, overlaying the buildings with colors sourced from various publications on American identity in architecture. It comments on the American imperialism within a western lens. This particular piece is one of four images taken from the same point as the photographer moved the camera in different directions. The overlaying of the American colorization inverts the photographer's attempt at familiarizing the viewer with the space, cultivating a sense of the alien and unfamiliar.

A Look Back

This sculpture is a blown-up detail of the surface of Mars represented in a light installation. The divisions in the piece suggest the triangulation of mapping planetary surfaces. The triangles indicate a piece of human engineering transported to this Martian landscape, offering an opportunity for human space travel. This piece was shown in The Presence-A Double Installation by Mário Cordeiro at Margaret Harvey Gallery, St. Albans as a solo exhibition first prize award from the University of Hertfordshire, UK. It  was then shown in the group exhibitions Terminal and E=mc2 at the Museu Nacional de Ciencia e Tecnologia in Portugal.
