Jennifer Purdum Ordinary objects can often be the repository of our memories and our identities. In an effort to link personal connections with objects and places, the recent series of digital prints titled “ViewFinder” are a combination of screen printed Plexi glass props that are used as view-finders to capture the changing neighborhood of Northside in Cincinnati.
The images are disorienting and fragmented, a combination of photos, printmaking and drawing in a desire to create a fleeting or temporary image about changing places.
Although the pieces are not digitally collaged, the way that the drawn elements, the reflections and background interact gives the illusion of a disruption in the image and disjointed space. The places pictured are fast disappearing parts of Cincinnati neighborhoods, which are quickly gentrifying, and at times through an artists’ own actions. The digital images represent the instability of depicting place and the human desire to be part of one.
Jennifer Purdum received her B.F.A from University of Cincinnati, D.A.A.P in 2000, and M.F.A. from American University in Washington D.C. in 2003. Purdum lives and works in Cincinnati, where she and Andy Au share a renovated studio (Fuse Press) in OTR. Purdum has exhibited at the Cincinnati Art Museum, 21-C Hotel Museum Cincinnati, in Brooklyn NYC and internationally.
Jennifer Purdum has a total of 7 pieces of art displayed in our Attention to Detail exhibit. All exhibit pieces are for sale. If you are interested in seeing the exhibition virtually, click here.
