ECHO is a poetic expression of an industrial wasteland experienced through images of an abandoned lead mining town in Oklahoma. The environmental installation is a composition of surrealistic photographs printed on large and small silk panels and lightly stitched with gold tinsel. The barely-there-and-fading nature of the printing process is an intentional expression of the gradual disappearance of prosperity. The panels hang floor to ceiling and move with the air in the room. ECHO is a dreamy visitation to relinquishment of good fortune.
ECHO will make it's first appearance at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center in the Crossroads Arts District of Downtown Kansas City, April/May of 2016. Gallery Hours are Thurs - Sat, 11 am - 5 pm. The next first Friday opening will be May 6, 6-9 pm.
