New Work at Vox Populi in May 2010
Julianna Foster and Lori Spencer, Fair Ophelia
Fair Ophelia marks the first collaboration between Julianna Foster and Lori Spencer. While examining, interpreting, and elaborating on the life and death of the character Ophelia, the ideas generated from Ophelia's story will explore the myriad-layered portrayal of this woman seen through the eyes and perspective of the three fates from Greek mythology. The investigation of these characters will be realized through photography, video, and text.
Julianna Foster is a Senior Lecturer in the Media Arts Department at The University of the Arts. Lori Spencer is an Associate Professor in Printmaking at The University of the Arts. As a printmaker, Lori Spencer incorporates traditional print such as screen-printing and lithography with new innovative digital processes to create imagery that reveals an ongoing investigation into and with the medium. Focusing primarily on the photographic image, Julianna Foster's most recent work features distinct pictorial narratives. Drawing upon her interests in cinematography, Foster presents a combination or series of images--sometimes sequential, sometimes not--that take the form of framed photographs, a book, or video. This exhibition was made possible by a Faculty Enrichment Grant from UArts.
