Opening Reception: Thursday, September 26, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. (Artist Talk: 6 p.m.)
“look/out” is a solo exhibition of mixed media works by Naomi Falk.
Her artwork revolves around what she calls her “central awareness: animate becomes inanimate, inanimate becomes animate — body becomes object, object becomes body — as I create representations of my physical space. A shadow, a trace, is retained. It is my body, but it is not.”
She says that she hopes by weaving together memories, myths and facts, her art may provoke a subtly skewed awareness of the ordinary, and a deeper understanding of physical and psychological relationships to place. Recently, she has found herself working in multiples, and her process and performance works often interpret the impact of social events frequently relying on audience participation.
Falk grew up in Michigan and studied art at Michigan State and Portland State University. She has a Master of Fine Arts degree from Carnegie Mellon University and is currently a visiting assistant professor, gallery coordinator and technician in the Art and Art History Department at the College of William & Mary. http://naomijfalk.com
