Culture Clash I
ArtPrize ( September 2011 Installation )
Culture Clash combines my Heritage Works—screenprinted photographic images expressing the alternative lifestyle of the North Dakota Mennonite farming community where I was raised—with my abstract paintings depicting aerial views of the fields I plowed in my youth. The screenprinted photographs are symbolic of the continued “otherness” found in the Mennonite community. The culture clash refers to the continuing contradictions I experience through having personal stakes in two very different groups—the art world and the Mennonite community.
