The Huntsville Museum of Art has a new art exhibition featuring the works of New Orleans-based artist, Courtney Egan. The exhibit, titled “Encounters: Courtney Egan,” will showcase the artist’s lens-based media artwork that merges digital technologies, sculpture, and the tradition of botanical art.
Visitors to the museum will have the chance to see Egan’s innovative artwork and explore her unique perspective on the relationship between human life and the plant world. The exhibition opened April 16th, and will be on display until September 24th.
Egan’s artistic vision raises questions about the intersection between nature and technology. Through her work, she explores how technology can alter our perception of nature. Egan’s animated collages blend time-lapse photography and digital image manipulation to create striking and thought-provoking arrangements that blur the line between the natural and the digital world.
“Encounters: Courtney Egan” will feature multiple media such as sculptural 3-D elements, animated 3-D elements, and depth camera-based interactivity, which will form individual pieces. Egan’s primary art practice positions the plant world as an equal cohort to the human world, exploring the fundamental irony of our experience with nature through technology.
“We are thrilled to host Courtney Egan’s cutting-edge artwork at the museum,” said Christopher Madkour, Executive Director of the Huntsville Museum of Art. “Egan’s unique artistic vision creates a thought-provoking experience for viewers and offers a fresh perspective on our relationship with nature and technology.”
“Encounters: Courtney Egan” is presented by Lead Sponsors Sasha and Charlie Sealy. Visit the Huntsville Museum of Art website at hsvmuseum.org to learn more about this and other upcoming exhibitions and events.
