Cut Tear Burn Sew: Valerie Corradetti, Maria Levitsky, and Jeffrey Rinehart
November 12 – December 11, 2016
Opening: November 12 and December 10, 6-9pm
Curated by University of New Orleans, Department of Fine Arts, Artist in Residence Ariya Martin, works by University of New Orleans Master of Fine Arts alumni Valerie Corradetti, Maria Levitsky, and Jeff Rinehart in “Cut Tear Burn Sew” explore the architecture and structure of images through the various methods the artists employ in making their work. Steeped in processes of chemistry, editing, and digital technology, photography is an especially apt medium for exploring the concept. The collaging, emulsions, printmaking, and sculptural forms these artists use are the first steps towards creating the composition of the photographs, which include subjects such as architecture and landscape.
