Vickie Pierre (Alumni Artist in Residence 2009-2010)
Vickie Pierre’s assemblages incorporate mass produced, gender-specific objects designed to reflect a particular historic period, including vintage perfume bottles and decorative wall art. While maintaining familiar sentiments of femininity, romanticism, and decadence, her work subversively questions the influence of popular culture on identity formation.
Yomarie Silva-O’Neal (Alumni Artist in Residence 2010-2011)
Silva O’Neal’swork strives to give viewers a new perspective on the order and rhythm in biological forms. Inspired by the work of turn-of-the-century biologist, Ernst Heackel, her practice includes the collection and investigation of small biological treasures.
Michael Gellatly (Project Artist in Residence 2013-2014)
Gellatly will present “Ice Plants and Other Post-Natural Varieties,” immediate works based on field-note style investigations of the Estate. Works include an ephemeral one night ice-construction as well as colorful mixed-media collages.
