Edged Out is a series of paintings and sculptural works about human influence on nature. The artworks specifically focus on the vulnerable state of amphibians, a modern canary in the coal mine offering us a prophetic glance at what lies ahead for all inhabitants of an ailing environment.
These artworks are visual translations of research conducted by the Richards-Zawacki Herpetology Lab at the University of Pittsburgh. During my six-month artist residency at the lab, I’ve immersed myself in scientific topics represented in this exhibition, such as habitat loss, disease and conservation methods.
Please RSVP here for the opening reception June 28, 6-9 PM.
A public reception will follow. The Frick Environmental Center is located at 2005 Beechwood Boulevard, Pittsburgh, PA 15217.
