Resolutionis a group exhibition that features the work of Rebecca Drolen, Annie May Johnston, Bree Lamb, and Rachel Livedalen. Their work is thematically linked by their interest in technology and its effect on the practice of image-making. Today, images can be copied, printed, filtered, retouched, and shared around the world. These artists provide a thoughtful response to our contemporary image-saturated culture.
Rebecca Drolen is an artist and educator currently working in Arkansas. Her photographs are concerned with how individuals visually assemble their identity – and she is particularly preoccupied with hair. Her work balances built spaces, assemblage, and performance, but the end result is persistently the photograph.
Annie May Johnston is currently an artist, Assistant Professor of Practice at the University of Texas at Austin, and founder of Motif. Previously she earned her BA in Psychology and Classics from the University of Colorado, Boulder and her MFA in Print from the University of Texas at Austin. She also lived and worked in Paris, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco. Her work is exhibited nationally and internationally in 2017 she completed a 90 ft. commission for Facebook in Austin.
Bree Lamb is an artist, educator, and editor based in New Mexico. She is an Assistant Professor of Photography at New Mexico State University, and holds an MFA from the University of New Mexico and a BFA from Pennsylvania State University. Her creative research questions social conventions, with particular focus on the complexities of identity, domesticity, and consumerism. Her work examines our shared desires to identify, connect, and indulge through images, as well as the inherent complications of contemporary vernacular photography.
Rachel Livedalen grew up in Texas, North Carolina, and Virginia. She earned her BA in Studio Art and Art History from the University of Virginia. In 2014 Rachel graduated with an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Iowa. Rachel Livedalen is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas. Her creative research explores contemporary femininity through the lens of past histories and mythologies. She is represented by Erin Cluley Gallery in Dallas, TX.
