Seed Sisters, the artist collective of which I am a member, will have work on display in France this summer. We are exploring the concept of “Terroir,” which is a French word that relates to land, country, and origination. The show opens on July 26th in Monflanquin, France, and runs through August 6th.
About the included artwork:
This series of mixed media paintings are a personal mediation on the history, culture, and countries that have shaped me as an artist and a human. They consider the concept of terroir by integrating influences from multiple sources, much as a plant grown in a place is influenced by the specificities of soil, weather and care. The paintings also read like an archaeological investigation, in which one sees fragments of texts, broken forms, and fused layers of paint that read out a history that cannot be defined or understood in their individuality, but in their collective, allow a narrative to emerge.
