“Whaddya Say Jim”
90 second film, 90 photographs,
and Image ViewFinder installation
Bridget Kirkland’s body of work is titled,”Whaddya Say Jim.” For Kirkland not all memories or stories are recalled perfectly. It is here that her work begins, in a place where thoughts are patchy and stories are recreated. The stories she tells are fragmented and reveal only a glimpse into the larger narrative. Born in Philadelphia, Bridget Kirkland was raised on the lakeshore of Erie, PA. Summer art classes and a grandmother who “looked at things differently” shaped her personal outlook. Solving visual problems coupled with an innate ability to “see through the fluff” allows Kirkland to express art through fresh, clean, honest design.
The show reception is this Friday, 6:30-8pm. The show will be up in the Elizabeth Patrick Dunlap Gallery until May 5.
