From Janie To Janie by Becky Wilkes

From Janie To Janie by Becky Wilkes October 5 - October 26, 2018 Reception: October 5, 2018; 6 - 9pm

From “Janie To Janie” explores the implications of our throwaway society through the examination of debris collected from the shoreline of Eagle Mountain Lake, near Fort Worth, TX. For one year during the drought of 2014 to 2015, every item found on the newly exposed lakefront was photographed in-situ and again in studio, collected and arranged into photographic collages. Individually, the images reveal the variety, quantity and rate of disintegration of the materials in the lakefront. Collectively, the collages might overwhelm the viewer, hopefully into awareness and action.
