Featuring: Rebecca Schultz
Inspired by the relationship between humans and the natural world, Reclamation is an exhibition of work by artists Rebecca Schultz and Dana Scott that features their first collaborative installation—photographs of local rock formations layered with drawings of abandoned stone structures. Through layering natural and man-made structures, Reclamation exposes the varied degrees of human interference within natural processes and illuminates the compositions that appear as they change, overlap, and intersect. Reclamation will open to the public by appointment at DaVinci Art Alliance on Wednesday, September 16th, 2020 and will also be available online as a 3-D virtual experience.
Rocks span geologic time, while human-built stone structures represent a mere blip. Reclamation features imagery of natural rock formations and human-built structures derived from the same stone, illustrating the interaction between man and nature through the manipulation of geology. Both Rebecca Schultz and Dana Scott have been exploring this relationship for years — Rebecca has studied changing rock formations from the Wissahickon to Ireland, Iceland, and France while Dana has concentrated on the entropic beauty of nature and addressing the relationship between humans and their environments.
Rebecca Schultz and Dana Scott met as undergraduates at Rhode Island School of Design, but it wasn’t until Rebecca returned to Pennsylvania that the artists realized the similarities in the resources and stimuli for their artwork. Both Rebecca and Dana share an interest in the beauty of the natural world and maintain a curiosity about our place in it. Reclamation will include the first collaborative installation that the artists have done together and recent works by the two artists.
