Hours: Tues - Sat 10 AM - 5 PM | Sun 11 AM - 5 PM      Address: 9th & Commerce / MacArthur Park, P.O. Box 2137, Little Rock, Arkansas 72203-2137      Phone: 501.372.4000

I have two works in the 60th Delta Exhibition- a video work titled "Unremember" and a pigment print on handmade paper titled "With Their Own Hands". Both of these works are part of a series I did based on images of homes that were built by hand. Some of the places were inhabited by their builders, others were abandoned.  In the video and prints I added appropriated images of places devastated by war or natural disaster.  In the series I explored the intimacy of once cherished objects, clothing, and spaces left behind as people move on or are pushed away. 

I was especially excited to have "Unremember" included in the Delta Exhibition as video works are less often accepted. I hope there will be more opportunities to see new mediums such as video art, performance art, interactive art and/or digital art in the Delta and other regional juried shows. These media often critique art as a commodity, they challenge our aesthetic assumptions about art, and they represent issues or ideas connected to our contemporary media-driven culture.
