Event description

Description

Join us for the culminating exhibition of studio residents Kate Ingold and Brittany Ransom, showing new works in paper, fabric, plaster, plastic and silicon.

Kate Ingold is a visual artist and poet working in a variety of media, from textiles made from recycled and new materials to stitched and etched drawings on digital photographs, sculptural, video and performative installation, and image/text collage. In her work, she examines issues of disturbance, reparation and collapse, and the nostalgia and regret that can accompany loss. Her chapbook, Dream of Water, was chosen by Harryette Mullen for the Poetry Society of America’s National Chapbook Fellowship and was published in 2008. Kate received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and currently lives in Los Angeles. At the Camera Obscura Art Lab (4/25-8/1/18), she continues her work on Damaged Goods/Small Repairs, a series of repairs and embellishments of discarded quilts, scratched drawings on photographs, and image/text collages

Utilizing 3D printers alongside traditional sculptural practices, Brittany Ransom creates objects that interrogate the form and function of society and nature. The recipient of numerous awards and grants including the competitive Workshop Residency in San Francisco (2016), the Arctic Circle Research Residency (2014), University Research council and Instructional Technology Grant Awards (2013-2014), and the prestigious College Art Association Professional Development Fellowship (2011), Ransom has shown internationally and nationally and has been featured in numerous publications. Her most recent work has been exhibited in Berlin (as part of Transmediale 2017), Los Angeles, Chicago, and Dallas. Ransom served as the 2017 SIGGRAPH Studio Chair and will serve as the 2019 SIGGRAPH Art Gallery Chair, both in Los Angeles. She collaborates with a number of local contemporary art institutions and science museums. Ransom received her Master of Fine Arts Degree in Electronic Visualization from the University of Illinois at Chicago (2011) and her Bachelor of Fine Arts from The Ohio State University with a concentration in Art and Technology (2008). She is currently serving as the Assistant Professor of Sculpture + New Genres at California State University Long Beach. At the Camera (4/25-8/1/18) she’ll continue working on Well Real Estate Is Always Good As Far As I’m Concerned, a series of real estate sites that she models in 3D, prints and casts in paper pulp, then feeds to termites.
