Eliot Dudik: “Broken Land | Still Lives"
The Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery in the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts on the campus of Coastal Carolina University will display works by Eliot Dudik in his solo exhibition “Broken Land | Still Lives.”
Eliot Dudik is a photographic artist, educator, and bookmaker exploring the connection between culture, landscape, memory, and politics. In 2012, Dudik was named one of PDN’s 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch and one of Oxford American Magazine’s 100 New Superstars of Southern Art. He was awarded the PhotoNOLA Review Prize in 2014 for his Broken Land and Still Lives portfolio. His photographs have been exhibited in cities across the United States including, Los Angeles, New York City, Washington DC, San Francisco, Houston, and Baltimore.
Dudik’s goals for this body of work is to, “create landscapes that come alive with the acts of war, and cause, at least, contemplation of the nature of being American, to allow understanding, communication, and cooperation with fellow citizens. These photographs are an attempt to preserve American history, not to relish it, but recognize its cyclical nature and to derail that seemingly inevitable tendency for repetition.”
“Broken Land | Still Lives will be on display from July 13th to August 21st with a closing reception with the artist on August 20th from 4:30 – 6:30pm in the gallery.
