Karsten Creightney: Works on Paper
2.18.12 – 4.29.12

Graphic Arts Gallery

Karsten Creightney uses a variety of media—photographs, prints, paint, and collage—to create images that capture the real and imagined worlds experienced in memories and dreams. "I am interested in the experience of wonder," Creightney states, "I make a space in my work where wonder can creep in." Included in this exhibition are several works reflecting Creightney's fascination with flowers and landscape, as well as self-portraits and a suite of nine lithographs titled Burial that deal with his uncle's death from a drug overdose.
