The Architect's Brother / ParkeHarrison
|Delivery time:||7-10 days|
Ranch visiting faculty Shana and Robert ParkeHarrison explore the triangular relationship of humans, technology and nature. They combine sculpture, painting, set design, performance, photography and implied narrative to create constructed, dreamlike images. Their works are currently included in Festival La Gacilly/Baden Photo, Baden, Austria. Past exhibitions include Mediations Biennale, Poznan, Poland, Lille 3000, Lille, France, and Wall at WAM, Worcester, MA. They are represented by Catherine Edelman Gallery, Chicago.
“I want to make images that have open, narrative qualities, enough to suggest ideas about human limits. I want there to be a combination of the past juxtaposed with the modern. I use nature to symbolize the search, saving a tree, watering the earth. In this fabricated world, strange clouds of smog float by; there are holes in the sky. These mythic images mirror our world, where nature is domesticated, controlled, and destroyed. Through my work I explore technology and a poetry of existence. These can be very heavy, overly didactic issues to convey in art, so I choose to portray them through a more theatrically absurd approach.” — Robert ParkeHarrison
