Please join Reimagined Landscape artist Vanessa Marsh as she talks about her process and influences. She will discuss the progression of her different bodies of work through the years, her devotion to the darkroom, and her constructed landscapes while also taking us on a virtual studio visit with a tour of various processes and examples of materials used to create her work.
Vanessa Marsh is an Oakland-based visual artist working in a mixed media process rooted in photography. Marsh innovates historical processes to create imaginary landscapes and atmospheres which inform a greater awareness of the everyday landscapes around us. Originally from Washington State, she moved to the Bay Area in 2002 and earned an MFA from California College of the Arts in 2004. Her work has been the subject of solo and group exhibitions at venues including Dolby Chadwick Gallery, SF Camerawork, Rayko Photo Center, Contemporary Jewish Museum, and the Sun Valley Art Center. Marsh has been the recipient of several awards and artist residencies including a Jentle Foundation Fellowship (2018), Photolucida Critical Mass Finalist (2018), a Rayko Photo Center residency (2014), a MacDowell Colony Fellowship (2007), and a Headlands Center for the Arts MFA Fellowship Award (2004). Her work has been featured in publications including Photo District News, Lens Scratch, Wired, and Vice, among others. Marsh’s images are held in institutional collections including the San Jose Museum of Art, San Francisco Art Commission, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, Fidelity Investments, and Stanford Hospital Foundation.
