First Friday Reception: June 5th, 6-9pm
Liz Obert’s new series began with her fascination with the cultural evolution of society in terms of its relationship with portable technology. “We use devices such as cell phones and cameras to connect to the world, but by doing so we become disconnected and removed from our immediate surroundings. I find this behavior is particularly ironic in natural settings where people go to escape their usual hectic lives but are unable to fully disengage.”
Liz Obert is an artist living in Portland Oregon. She is currently an Associate Professor of Art at Linfield College. She received her BFA from College of Santa Fe and her MFA from Washington State University. She has exhibited her work locally and internationally. Obert will be doing an artist residency this summer at CAMAC (The Centre d’Arts, Marnay Art Center) in France. View her work at lizobert.com.
