Assistant Professor of Visual Arts Adam D. Lampton is going home – or at least his art is.
Lampton’s work will be part of a group exhibition, “Materiality: The Matter of Matter” at Center Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) from this month through February 11, 2018 .
Lampton, who commutes to Stonehill from South Portland, Maine, said he is excited to be featuring his work in his home state.
Lampton is the only photographer featured in the exhibition, which focuses on using everyday materials to create new forms. Most of the other work featured by other exhibitors is sculpture.
Lampton’s four large images and six smaller images, titled “Front Range,” were created on a table in his basement using materials such as plaster, tinfoil, and garbage bags.
“One image is actually 15 to 20 images, with multiple exposures that were then seamed together,” Lampton said.
One image in “Front Range” features seven images of plaster to create what appears to be an aerial night landscape said Lampton.
Lampton said he was interested in landscape I was not in or had access to, a different range of Colorado where he went to college.
“I was thinking of it, trying to remember it, and mimic the elements of the landscape that resonate with me. ” he said.
