In their first two person exhibit – Past. Perfect. Continuous. – Whitney and Micah Stansell combine film, video, sculpture, drawing and painting to explore how these different methodologies influence one another as well as the content of the artwork. Employing ideas from film/video editing and montage, Whitney’s series of drawings and paintings allude to a larger narrative, while Micha’s video installation borrows an open narrative structure from the “static” works.
Whitney Stansell was born in Greenville, SC. She received her BFA in Fiber Arts from the University of Georgia and her MFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design-Atlanta. She combines painting, drawing, fibers and printmaking to create work that explores memory, history, and imagination. Her work has been reviewed in Art in America, The Atlantan, Creative Loafing, The Atlanta Journal and Constitution, and FiberARTS Magazine. Recipient of the Forward Arts Grant and Hambidge Residency, she recently completed an artist residency at the Atlanta Printmakers Studio. Whitney Stansell is an adjunct professor at the Art Institute of Atlanta.
