The Collections

Recent Acquisitions: Jennifer Steinkamp, Judy Crook 9, 2017

Artist Jennifer Steinkamp’s digital animation Judy Crook 9 introduces images of nature into architectural spaces in a manner that complicates the idea of inside and outside, and built versus natural environments. It takes the viewer through four seasons in one tree’s life—repeated endlessly to simultaneously evoke the cyclical nature of life and the ideal of infinite existence. Steinkamp has been making works of digital art that honor her art teachers over the years.
