High-Key artists Victoria Fu, Audrey Hope, and Matt Rich talk with curator Elizabeth Rooklidge about color’s dynamic function in their materially and conceptually diverse practices.
Audrey Hope’s installations and performances create immersive environments suggestive of the distinct natural environments of her works’ sites. Her work has been exhibited at venues such as MaRS Gallery, Los Angeles, CA, the New Wight Gallery, University of California, Los Angeles, CA, and SOMA Mexico, Mexico City, Mexico.
Victoria Fu’s practice encompasses the mediums of digital video, photographs, and multimedia installations. She has had solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tucson, AZ and the Katonah Museum of Art, Katonah, NY, as well as group exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY, among many others.
Painter Matt Rich explores the power of abstraction, translating his medium across forms, from two to three dimensions and back again. His work has appeared at institutions such as the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, La Jolla, CA, the International Print Center New York, New York, NY, and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA.
