Paper Sculpture Installation by Whitney Stansell.
FiberARTS, the magazine on contemporary textile art and craft, recently profiled artist Whitney Stansell in the April/May 2010 issue. Discover how she interweaves fragments of family history, memory, fabric patterns, and vintage clothes to create mixed-media sculpture about love, loss and forgiveness.
Whitney Stansell’s drawings, paintings and sculpture are on view in the gallery until May 15, 2010 in Past.Perfect. Continuous., a collaborative exhibit and video installation with her husband and filmmaker Micah.
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.
Micah Stansell received an MFA from Georgia State University in Digital Filmmaking and the Arts. A filmmaker and moving image artist, his work has been screened at film festivals nationally and internationally, and shown at art centers and museums across the Southeast. He lives and works in College Park, GA with his wife and artist, Whitney Stansell.
Past. Perfect. Continuous is on view through May 15, 2010.
