For her second solo exhibition at Upfor, New York based artist Katie Torn presents new collages and video works. Torn builds fantastical virtual totems using the detritus of consumerist culture. Assembling the color, texture and whimsy of early modernist painting, Torn crafts hyperreal fairytale spaces and experimental video works using tools commonly employed in commercials and Hollywood films.
Low Tide is the last in a series of three solo exhibitions by gallery artists working primarily in media art. The prior exhibitions are She Who Sees the Unknown: Huma by Morehshin Allahyari (June 1 through 24) and Axis Spread by Brenna Murphy (June 28 through July 22).
