Lemon’s work featured in 2-person show at Averitt
Recent work by Professor Christina Lemon will be featured in a two-person show at the Averitt Center for the Arts in Statesboro. In Digital Intersections Lemon and her friend and colleague, Lauren P. Lampe visually express themselves and their thoughts through the lens of their encounters with technology. Lemon teaches 3D foundations, jewelry and small metals with the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art at Georgia Southern, and Lampe teaches foundations of design, graphic design and typography at La Roche University in Pittsburg, PA. Each artist were trained in tradition craft and hand-skills and have come to embrace technology in their work. Work is mixed media, small metals and enameling.
Lemon’s work features one-of-a-kind and limited edition designs in sterling silver, copper and enamel and mixed media. Fabrication and cold connection techniques are used to construct Christina’s three-dimensional brooch and jewelry forms. The photographic decal images and patterns are created digitally and either digitally printed or laser cut. The images and silhouettes are combined to create layers of meaning and context.
Lampes’s series of digital collages evolved out of a 100 day pattern design challenge in which she participated in during this past spring. For this series she scanned sketchbook drawings and manipulated layers of them using Adobe Illustrator software. Many of the collages are layers and layers of sketchbook drawings blended to make bold dynamic compositions.
Digital Intersections will be on view at the Averitt Center for the Arts from Nov. 12 – Jan. 6. A reception is slated for Nov. 12 at 5:30 p.m.
