Corrie Slawson

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, September 26, 2015,  6:30-8:30pm

SHAHEEN is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Corrie Slawson entitled, “A desert of magnificence… (a glittering waste of laborious idleness.)”

According to Corrie Slawson:

“My work is a constant visual consideration of places that teeter between vitality and vacancy. From this research, using my own composited photography as a journalistic survey of properties and land, I build macro and microscopic city- and landscapes on paper in a variety of print media with handwork. I parse and present development patterns, population loss and land-use policies from the visual language already extant in my surroundings– color, architecture, reflectivity, texture and pattern. Reflective materials such as metal leaf and spray paint allow subtle transitions that mirror my original movements through spaces, as the pace of my walking past city blocks or momentary sun glare from a car window.”
