Current/Upcoming Exhibitions

CYNTHIA FARNELL- ANCESTORS, MILK AND WINE

 

Gallery-72-Invite

On view April 14- June 30, 2016

Cynthia Farnell’s dual installations at Gallery 72, Ancestors and Milk and Wine, are explorations of cultural and personal memory via the intertextual relationships between photographs, objects and projected images. Ancestors is a surreal mingling of mythological and archetypal imagery related to Farnell’s ancestral ties in Alabama and the Caribbean. Milk and Wine uses her father’s lifelong hobby of cultivating lilies to explore how we incorporate, carry, and pass on memory, place and identity.

Alabama native Cynthia Farnell is a visual artist working in lens-based media. Much of her work addresses the shifting meanings of home, place, community and identity in contemporary life.

Farnell currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia, where she is the director of the Welch School Galleries at Georgia State University. She has exhibited her work internationally including venues in New York City, France, New England and the southern United States. She has been awarded residencies at The Sloss Furnaces Visiting Artist Program in Birmingham, Alabama and at the Virginia Center For Creative Arts in Amherst, Virginia. Her work is in the permanent collections of the International Center of Photography, the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art and the Myrtle Beach Art Museum.
