Shadow and Mooring August 30 - September 29
NIPSCO Education Studio
Artist Cathy Feeman’s body of work is makes a visual connection between physical topographies and the internal topographies, or histories, that mark where we have been and the place we presently occupy in the world. The subject matter in this body of paintings are the shadows that have been extracted from archived family photographic images rather than the images themselves. The stories contained within these appropriated images emerge as a type of peripheral transient memory - impoverished recollections. With both the subject and context removed, what is left is merely the shadow of a recorded event.
