Strange Passages: An Installation by Maria Park
July 15–October 9, 2005
read catalogue essay     back to list see current exhibitions see upcoming exhibitions

Kansas City-based artist Maria Park uses a combination of media and techniques—including acrylic on Acrylite, collage, and multi-colored vinyl applied directly to the wall—to create environments of speed and digitized experience. Her fantastical landscapes form the periphery of the gallery and unfold like the sequence of a filmstrip to tell a story of time and place. However, Park's story is disjunctive and nonlinear, zooming from one location to the next, thereby creating an entire landscape that could only exist in the mind. Maria Park was a visiting artist at the Kemper Museum.
