On Thursday two of our artists in residence, Kathleen Scott-Moore and Michelle Dickson, spoke about their work at CSU. Michelle’s work is installation based and uses a combination of 2-D and 3-D elements. She deals with the imprints memories leave on us…the ephemerality of moments and life. She is also interested in incorporating the viewer’s body in the work either through installation that dictates where the viewer can walk or by evoking the body through the texture and appearence of her sculptural elements.

Kathleen’s work focuses on bringing the historical into the present. Her family would participate in historical re-enactments which is what instilled this interest in her as a child. A lot of her work is portraiture of her contemporaries using antique photo processes. She intentionally obscures the image to give it a blurred and ghostly feel.
