Artist Talks: Robin Dru Germany, Page Piland, and Jason Makepeace
May 19, 2018 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Join exhibiting artists Robin Dru Germany, Page Piland, and Jason Makepeace as they discuss their work on view in the exhibition Stratiforms.
Stratiforms features the work of three artists who examine layers in the natural environment through photography, sculpture, and painting. These artists demonstrate acute observations of place, process, and materials, specifically in reference to wood and water. Robin Dru Germany portrays waterways in her recent series, titled Surface Tension, through photographs that reveal the parallel systems between water and air. Navigating the creeks, rivers and lakes from the Panhandle to the Gulf Coast, Germany reveals these intertwined environments that are laden with implications for our future. Jason Makepeace excavates miniature kayaks and oars from whole logs in his Moldable Subtractions series. As an avid kayaker, these works honor the shape and form of the vessels he often uses to navigate our coastal waterways. Page Piland’s trompe l’oeil paintings reveal mirrored surfaces painted from the cross sections of reclaimed wood taken from sites he encounters in his daily life. These works examine our place in the natural environment and the origins of their materials and subjects, while excavating divisions between what is seen and imagined.
