      Thursday, 23 June 2011 20:07

      I am interested in what happens to traumatizing or confounding images when they are removed from their original place in cultural memory. My work investigates visual nuances that occur when these images are translated into a mass-media product, stripped of their inherent meaning, and re-presented in a new context, with an entirely disguised origin. By […]

      Thursday, 23 June 2011 18:13

      My work deals with the condition of woman in contemporary society, questioning her obsessions with body image, beauty, sexuality and aging.

    • IDOL: Face to Face with the Self-Made Man

      Wednesday, 22 June 2011 15:04

      An amorphous mass pulls itself into existence, rises from its rubble, and accretes like a volcanic pile. The resulting sculpture is satisfyingly tactile and rocky. Its glossy yet sandy surface invites the viewer’s touch. Nooks and crannies guide the hand from bulks at the bottom to the tip, as the formation twists up and out […]

Both worshipper and idol, Narcissus remains forever kneeling at the side of the pool as a figure for our need to see ourselves in our objects of […]

      “I think of each layer of paint as concealing– but only partially– an entire world behind it.” Jason Stopa: These are clearly mixed media pieces. But I’m curious; does the term ‘mixed media’ even mean anything anymore? How do you see them? Keltie Ferris: Actually, I don’ t ever use the term mixed media, because […]
