Parallax: Landscapes in Translation

Cynthia Hammond, Kelly Thompson, and Kathleen Vaughan present Parallax: Landscapes in Translation, work in acrylic on canvas, hand woven digital jacquard cloth, and digital and hand embroidery and textile piecing. The common theme is the embodied experience of landscape, and the representation, defamiliarization, and translation of landscape via different media. The works meditate on the passage of time, by either fixing a moment (the play of light on water), revisiting the same place again and again (such as a well-traveled trail), or by aiming to represent a transient encounter with a place of great significance. The artists deploy a combination of digital and analogue processes, working with and against authoritative forms of spatial representation (Google maps, digital photography, computerized looms).
