This exhibition at Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester includes a site-specific installation of two paintings and a video from the Biological Regionalism Series and three paintings from the Aesthetics of Death Series. These works from the “Biological Regionalism Series” investigates the historically-significant section of the Genesee River above Seth Green Island and the migrating steelhead trout species from Lake Ontario. “Biological Regionalism” is a series of paintings and videos that identifies the landscape and the fish that are distinctive to a region. I envision the project creating indigenous symbols of a culture.
