Solo Exhibition of Spring 2017 Cherkis Scholarship Recipient: Adam Field


In this work, I explore the contemporary relationship between man and nature. Specifically, I photographed abandoned objects and places along a stretch of fence in West Oakland. My work seeks to mine the emotional consequences of our lost innocence and disassociation from the natural world.

Solo Exhibition: Hiromichi Matsudaira “Experimental”
