Event Description

Fantastic Logic, Speculative Models
Work by Amanda Hughen and Carin Mincemoyer
March 26- April 30
Opening Reception Friday, March 26 6-10pm
Good Citizen presents “Fantastic Logic, Speculative Models”. This exhibition will bring together the work of San Francisco based artist Amanda Hughen and Pittsburgh based artist Carin Mincemoyer. The work of both artists investigates the natural world in which we live, inventively translating their findings into works of art. Accompanying the exhibition will be a new billboard by Amanda Hughen.

Amanda Hughen combines drawing, painting, and screen-printing onto translucent mylar. Her work references biology, geology, architecture, and astrology and explores similar transformations that occur across seemingly diverse scientific realms. These ambiguous images could be stars colliding, cancer cells metastasizing, plant photosynthesis occurring, or infinite other scientific transformations. None of the images she depicts are in fact rooted in actual events, but rather come from her own amateur fantasies of the scientific world.
Hailing from San Francisco, Amanda Hughen has exhibited and lectured internationally, including exhibitions at the Berkeley Art Museum (CA), Danese (NY), Knoedler and Company (NY), and the Triton Museum of Art (CA). She has been an artist-in-residence at the DeYoung Museum of Art (CA), the Headlands Center for the Arts (CA), and Yaddo (NY). She has been a National Endowment for the Arts Scholar and served as Chair of the Advisory Board of the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery. She received a BA from Washington and Lee University and an MFA from University of California, Berkeley.

Carin Mincemoyer is a sculptor and installation artist who often utilizes such commonplace household items as Styrofoam and plastic packaging. She uses these elements to create miniature landscapes and life size installations. These creations serve to examine the often contradictory needs that we look to the “natural”, or non-human, world to fulfill. Her work also serves as an investigation of human desire – examining what people want, how they go about getting it, and the by-products left behind in an industrialized culture.
Mincemoyer currently lives and works in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She received a BFA from Carnegie Mellon and an MFA from the University at Buffalo. Her work has been exhibited at venues including the Rochester Contemporary in Rochester, NY, d.u.m.b.o. Arts center in Brooklyn, NY, and Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ. Recently, she was an Artist in Residence at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art in Omaha, NE and the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture in Dawson City, Yukon, Canada. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including a 2007 grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, a 2007 Fellowship from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a 2005 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award from the International Sculpture Center, and an Individual Artist Award from the Pittsburgh Foundation in 2003.
