Nothing But Time
the work of Juan Fernandez and Catherine Jacobi
July 8-Aug. 2, 2019
"The material/object itself considers a narrative that has already existed and one that it is transformed into. Emotional connections are made from what is already known. It is a common commentary that the constancy of objects, which endure in our memories, only ever change."
Both Fernandez and Jacobi's work speak to the fleeting nature of our experience with our surroundings as we move through time and space. Objects that adorn our memories make up Jacobi's deconstructed/reconstructed installations. These seemingly ephemeral objects, while fragmented, remain constants in our memory. Fernandez experiments with processes such as light projections and wet plate collodion prints, which are impermanent and unpredictable. Shapes and objects, however, are given permanence through his use of light as a vehicle to create.
Reception: Friday, July 12, 6-9 p.m.
The reception will take place in the Fine Arts Center Gallery and is free and open to the public.
