JAN CHRISTENSEN is native to Nebraska, living in Lincoln. She travels the back roads of America to document our landscape as close to its natural state as possible. These images and the process of finding and making them are an antidote to the frantic pace of life today; a way of being in the now – present to the infinite sky, spirit, and majesty of little- known places, finding solace in expansive panoramic views. She received a BFA from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, with her senior year at Massachusetts College of Fine Arts. On scholarship from the Massachusetts Council on the Arts she attended Harvard University’s School of Business, Institute in Arts Administration. Her work is in the permanent collections of three Nebraska Museums of Art, major banks, corporate, and private collections and has been on view in the Discovery Room of the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography.
The recent works of Lorinda Rice continue to explore the journey of life. Using topographical maps and lines found in nature, these conceptual works relate to the journey we are traveling. During some parts of the adventure, we uncover unexpected stops that are a respite. At other times, when staying the course, we only reveal part of the map, focusing inward or revealing only a small portion to others.
The Defense Cascade is the basis and focal point driving this recent ongoing body of work. Beyond the familiar "fight or flight," the stages are primal unifiers for all humans who have experienced the traumas of life, but each stage varies wildly as we experience our individual human natures with our unique brains, bodies and life paths. These pieces speak of and travel through phases of my story; more on this conversation can be found at saramcneillyammon.com.
