Reconstructing The Portrait: Kim DePaul and Liz Steketee. June 3rd– July 30th 2016. Opening Reception: Friday, June 3rd 5:00pm – 7:30pm
Schneider Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition Reconstructing the portrait with work by Kim DePaul and Liz Steketee. The work in this exhibition questions memory and the photograph as a reliable source of our own history through altered photographs.DePaul and Steketee both utilize collage and deliberate juxtaposition in to create unique portraits.
Kim DePaul rewrites her family’s history through the photographs she alters. DePaul incorporates found objects and text to images to encourage intimate narratives told in various voices. The reworked, torn apart, layered portraits become ambiguous pieces of information.
Liz Steketee fabricates hybrid personas and memories of people by stitching together layers of fragmented faces. Steketee conjoins what once were independent moments to form a questionable account of these newly formed individuals’ histories.
We look forward to seeing you there.
