Water captivates Honor Petrie creatively, her mind is bewitched to its visually powerful appearance. She uses water as a metaphor and medium to explore the fragile relationship between human perception and nature. Employing the effects of chromostereopsis with water, her installations present a celestial environment where light, colour and space melt together — a coming together of minds and nature’s elements.
“Water swirls, twists, distorts. The smooth black liquid moves quick. Immersing all in its path. It swells and disintegrates with immense weight, crashing and tearing down all in its power. Watching, the mind begins to feel the water’s movements, following its ever changeable patterns. The mind tries to connect as one yet is refused. Each rise and fall reveals the mind’s powerlessness and vulnerability. The surrounding space begins to encircle the body, submerging it. Isolated and disconnected, the mind transforms the water into a torrent, dominating its environment, overwhelming any sense of space, leaving behind a strange and anonymous landscape.”
Cuban-born artist Esterio Segura is a 1994 graduate of the prestigious Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana. Working in painting, sculpture and installation, Segura makes use of humorous imagery to address socially and politically charged themes from Cuban history. He has been exhibited extensively in Cuba, US, Germany, Spain, England, Argentina, Brazil and elsewhere in the world.
“Crowded with fantastic ideas and strong images, Segura’s work resonates with the angst of the Cuban people. Yet it is resolved in such a poetic way that the resilient beauty and creativity of life on the island is made clear.” (Kathy Zimmerer, 2002)
Brittany Reeber is an award winning filmmaker and producer. Her work encompasses music videos, projection, performance and short films in both documentary, narrative and something in between. Originally from Florida, she is endlessly inspired by the sunshine state and the ways in which it reflects the best and worst parts of humanity and our precarious relationship to the natural world. Her films are dark, funny and occasionally incorporate a choreographed dance routine. The Cheap Seats, her most recent project is currently screening virtually around the country. Funded by the Austin Film Society, Kodak and American Documentary, it explores a real life psychic community in central Florida through a narrative approach that blends fact with fiction.
