Mnemonic Devices: Rachel Jones and David Webber
(organized by NOMA) (second floor Frederick R. Weisman Galleries)
A duo of Louisiana artists, Rachel Jones and David Webber explore the process of selecting and assembling information from memories and pre-existing documents into new visual amalgams. Working in painting and video respectively, the artists share an interest in dissolving imagery and narratives into expressive fragments. In her paintings, Jones depicts loosely-defined human figures and landscapes which hover on the edge of recognition. Webber, working in video, superimposes images on top of each other, evoking the cognitive process of recollection as it is built through associations.
NOMA has info up about the duo show I am participating in this summer:
