The El Paso Museum of Art (EPMA) invites the public to visit the new exhibition, illuminated, that opens Thursday, October 20 with a reception starting at 5 p.m.
The exhibition is a series of works by New Mexico based multi-media artist, Isadora Stowe. Visitors will be able to experience a visual journey through an installation of paintings, silkscreens, floating Mylar, Plexiglas silhouettes, colored light, and projected video with incorporated sound. The audience is immersed with opportunities to engage in how we construct our own realities and designate meaning.
Isadora Stowe’s work focuses on the narrative of environment translated and coded into complex psychological landscapes. Stowe grew up in the southwest border region, living and working in New Mexico, Texas, and Mexico. She credits these experiences for providing a heightened awareness of geographical and political boundaries and a fascination with the exploration of identity of self and the construction of home in her work.
illuminated is presented with generous support from the Mellon Foundation, the Texas Commission on the Arts, the El Paso Museum of Art Foundation and the City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department.
