Alexandra Opie, Echo no. 236 , 2014

“Alexandra Opie: Echo”

APRIL 18 – MAY 17, 2015

Atrium Gallery, Hallie Ford Museum of Art (Willamette University)

Alexandra Opie is an associate professor of art at Willamette University, where she teaches photography and electronic media. An exhibition of her recent work entitled “Alexandra Opie: Echo” opens April 18 and continues through May 17, 2015, in the Atrium Gallery at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

In her most recent body of work, Opie explores the tension between the old and the new by combining one of the earliest photographic processes, the tintype, with present-day technology and subjects. Contemporary figures assume the attitudes of those in antique images while drawings of nineteenth-century dress are superimposed over them using in-camera masks.

“These echoes of the past capture a distinct change in how we occupy space,” Opie says. “Because our lives are increasingly saturated with digital media, and images proliferate rapidly, it is both surprising and eye-opening to delve into labor-intensive forms of photography that yield materially intense physical results.”

Opie’s work has been exhibited throughout the Pacific Northwest region and in national venues.
