Evie Woltil Richner, Burial
“…Each of these pieces is a burial, but also a memorial. Working from photographs of deceased relatives, I am physically burying them in a shroud of drawn feathers. Through burial, we acknowledge loss. The person is removed from our lives… When finished, the pieces become a signifier, like a gravestone, of a person who once was, and just as gravestones serve to connect us with a loved one after they’ve passed, these pieces are a physical connection I have to her. The feathers specifically reference the cross-cultural symbolism of the bird as a connection between heaven and earth.”

I received my copy of “Rape Culture A-Z” yesterday and was so impressed! It’s super informative and moving- and affordable.
Read the zine, spread the word, and help confront “a culture in which rape and sexual violence are common and in which media, prevalent attitudes, norms, and practices normalize, tolerate, and even condone rape.”
Today I received a letter I wrote to myself this past summer at SMFA.
my favorite part reads
Love yourself; you are beautiful and special.
Love your art; it is an extension of yourself and has a unique vision.
Love your friends; they keep you sane and will help you become a better artist.
Nourish your soul and make art.
Nourish your heart and stay close with your friends.
The CAPSULE installation repurposes digital 3D technology to create a kaleidoscopic illusion apparatus, a modern-day adaptation of early cinema’s “Kinetoscope”. It invites an unsuspecting audience of passers-by to enter an adventure of visual perception, dependent on their distance from the screen and their respective heights. Viewers are invited to either fully engage and “discover” the story unfolding on the screen, or fleetingly experience the images as mysterious, oneiric tableaux.
A single screen simultaneously shows two separate movies, constructed from the same story, yet juxtaposing and amplifying each other as twin narratives. Normal-speed scenes are punctuated by extreme-slow-motion shots taken at different camera angles, generating a stereoscopic narration in doubles.
The triangular lattice placed before the screen operates as a kaleidoscope in itself, reflecting the images in a new set of distortions. Some of the lattice cells contain mirrored drawings by Aleksandra Waliszewska, only visible in ghostly reflections, adding a new dimension for viewers to discover.
Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison are a creative couple who have been in the art world for nearly a decade creating unique images by combining photography, collage, painting, sculpture, and performance elements.
