Snowmass: Artistic Directors Exhibition, A Group Exhibition of New Works
Anderson Ranch Arts Center
January 24 - March 24, 2017
9 am - 5 pm Monday - Friday
This exhibition reveals the current inquiries and influences of Anderson Ranch’s four Artistic Directors: Doug Casebeer, Jose Ferreira, Liz Ferrill and Andrea Wallace
In his latest ceramic works, Doug Casebeer searches for meaning among the rural archetypal forms of the western landscape and from many years of experiencing different global cultures. Relationships among the ideas of storage, shelter, nourishment and home come together in an effort to understand the world around us.
Jose Ferreira investigates hidden content within the landscape, capturing the essence of collective histories through images taken on extensive walks. In photographs, drawings, texts and sculptures, he scrutinizes the stories and strategies that miners used in the American West to survive the harshness of their environment and endure strained social relations.
Using the traditional printmaking/painting technique of pochoir, Liz Ferrill portrays the vast solitude of the American landscape in her work, particularly places that seem cold but emotionally charged, dehumanizing yet full of personal experience. She explores these spaces in a sincere quest for beauty, while at the same time acknowledges their tension, functionality and reflection of human behavior.
With storytelling and narrative central to her work, Andrea Wallace researches issues surrounding the relationship between individuals and the construction of identity. She is interested in intersections: child and adult, women and men, the dualities of living, success and failure. Her photographic portraits explore the physical and psychological space that we inhabit simultaneously.
