Nick DeFord’s Old Haunts
Artist Nick DeFord’s work will be featured in his solo exhibition Old Haunts, which opens Tuesday, Jan. 19, and runs through Thursday, Feb. 18, 2016 in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery at Coastal Carolina University. A reception with the artist will take place on Thursday, Feb. 18 from 4:30- 6:30 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
DeFord’s work explores the visual culture of cartography, occult imagery, geographical souvenirs, and other structures of information that is altered to examine the relationship of identity, space, and place. The disruption of these visual systems reveals a thin boundary between the known and unknown.
“I select for subject matter places and themes that are infamous for their mystery. These mysterious themes may be the habitation of monsters, centers of conspiracy, occult devices, or vortices of mysticism.”
DeFord graduated from Arizona State University with a Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art and currently serves as program director for Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tenn.
