Visiting Artist: Carrie Ann Plank
Artist Talk: Wednesday, May 3, 12pm. Elena Baskin Visual Arts, Seminar Room D-101
Please join the Print Media in Visual Communication class this Wednesday, May 3 at 12pm in Elena Baskin Visual Arts, D101 for an Artist talk with San Francisco-based artist, Carrie Ann Plank whose creative practice incorporates the mediums of installation, printmaking and painting.
Focusing on layers of sophisticated geometry, Plank examines the space of intersecting patterns to describe new structures. The work utilizes mathematical equations to create multiple overlapping impressions that reveal additional distinct pattern formations. The resulting forms, seen through mathematical plotting, are space in between the intersection of concrete data.
Before devoting herself solely to her artist practice in 2018, Plank was the Director of Fine Art overseeing both the MFA and BFA programs at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
Plank exhibits her work nationally and internationally and is included in many private and public collections including the Fine Art Archives of the Library of Congress, Fine Art Museums of San Francisco, Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, the Guanlan Print Art Museum in China, Museum Meermanno in The Hague, Netherlands and The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Havana, Cuba, as well as corporate collections including Google, Genentech, and Norwegian Cruise Lines.
