March 23, 2017: Gary Emrich
A fourth-generation Coloradan, Gary Emrich uses humor and pop-culture iconography to both celebrate and poke fun at the myths of the West in his art. Making what he calls “straight photographs in the studio,” Emrich constructs his images from found and collected materials that include family mementos, kitsch objects, and even throw-away packaging. Through his inventive recontextualizations, he addresses deeper concerns like water scarcity, the aerospace industry, and personal memories. Promise, an exhibition of Emrich’s recent work in photography and video, was featured at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center in 2016.
