John Folsom – “Survey” – 2010
John Folsom – “Survey”
Newzones is pleased to announce John Folsom’s solo exhibition, “Survey” which will run from September 18 to October 23. The opening reception will be held Saturday, September 25 from 1-4 pm.
Drawing on the idea of a memento or a travel keepsake, Folsom presents landscape-referent works inspired by ephemera associated with place. Images from Banff and other points in the Pacific Northwest are altered, scanned, de-saturated, then further enhanced with other media. The goal of Folsom’s artistic practice is to create an idealized notion of images lost to time.
John Folsom graduated from the Southern Illinois University, Carbondale IL. with a Bachelor of Arts, Cinema and Photography. Folsom has exhibited extensively throughout North America and his work can be found in collections all over the world. These collections include: Christoph Merian Foundation, Basel Switzerland, Hunter Museum of American Art, Chattanooga, TN, Tennessee State Museum, Nashville, TN, and the Fulton County Arts Council, Atlanta, Georgia.
