Paper Forest: An Installation by Travis Graves and Jackson MartinApril 22, 2011 - September 25, 2011
United Company Contemporary Regional Art Gallery
Travis Graves and Jackson Martin (Johnson City, TN) create multi-media installations with materials ranging from dirt and plants to steel and video. These disparate materials together incite a dialogue regarding our human footprint and its effect on the environment. Their installations tend to cross many genres by fusing Modernist sculpture, Earthworks, video and behind-the-scenes performance in order to call attention to the impact our consumer culture has on the world we live in. Without being overly didactic, the message from these two artists is clear. We must find a way to both embrace where we are culturally and technologically while also preserving and protecting the earth.
