Exhibit features professor’s art

Erin Carney’s Upturned Leaves II, oil on panel, 5 inches by 10 inches, 2004, is among the paintings featured in a show at the Elsie B. Rosefsky Memorial Gallery.
“A Shifting Perception of the Familiar,” a show of recent paintings by Visiting Assistant Professor Erin Carney, will be on display from March 3-28 in FA-259, the Elsie B. Rosefsky Memorial Gallery.

The exhibit will open with a reception from 7-10 p.m. Friday, March 3.

The paintings included in this show explore Carney’s interest in how humans relate physically and perceptually to their environment.

This work investigates the geometry of sites manipulated by past human occupation or intervention that are now in the process of moving away from a humanized grid toward a more “natural” state.

These places come in many forms, from vines suffocating an abandoned orchard to the staggered encroachment of a woodlot to fallow field. Carney’s landscapes celebrate the passing moment of atmosphere, temperature and humidity of a specific place at a specific time.
