Claudia Wiburn "Reflections"
The Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery presents "Reflections", an exhibition of mixed media drawings based on photographs, sketchbooks, writings, and found text by artist Claudia Wilburn. Claudia, an assistant professor at Brenau University locate in Gainsvillie, GA, creates complex narratives based on images encompasses cemeteries from throughout the SE.
Her images feature elaborate funerary imagery reworked with drawings and text to explore the intersections between her southern upbringing, spirituality, memory, and emotion. Working back and forth between digital and handmade objects allows her to infuse a deeper understanding of these object and places.
“I value the human touch of handwritten texts,” says Claudia, “Often I use books and sermons that belonged to my Grandfather, a Baptist preacher from South Carolina, for much of my source text.”
Reflections will be on display in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery May 18th through June 19th, 2015.
