SHEPPARD GALLERY NEWS RELEASE – Sheppard Contemporary invites you to our upcoming exhibition “Reconstruct,” which features two artists from the San Francisco area – Traci Grifffin and Ana Kapodistria – who use visual language to create photographic images which re-examine our natural environments. Both artists are reexamining the ordinary by reconstructing elements of the environment to transform their images. Each of their approaches, while inspirationally different, relate to visualization of mental processes and the internal experience of an environment.

Kapodistria works with multiple and long exposures to record performances within the landscape exploring ideas of interaction and the relationship between nature and the manmade. Griffin uses the camera as a tool to share her unique vision of the world through impossible symmetries that fracture and visually reconstruct the landscape. Please join us on February 28, to hear the artists discuss their work and the installation within Sheppard Contemporary.
