New Orleans based electronic-media artist, Courtney Egan, is known for her projection-based sculptural installations on botanical themes. These works, described as ethereal, lovely, and poetic, are the result of Egan’s investigation of the natural world as experienced through media. Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Egan was drawn to nature as a source for her work. Yet, the artist was intrigued by the frequency with which we experience nature indirectly, through the mediated screens of computers and television. Egan describes her work as “subtly impossible, hybrid tableaus” and “pretty trickery” that asks the viewer to consider our relationships to the natural world and technology.
Egan’s exhibition is part of the Critic and Artist Residency Series, sponsored by the FUNd at CSU.
