CPCC’s Ross Galleries to Feature Works by Abstract Artists Andi Steele and Kyle Worthy

WHAT: CPCC will host works by abstract artists Andi Steele and Kyle Worthy May 15 through August 7 in its Ross Galleries.

Andi Steele
Andi Steele, an assistant professor of sculpture at UNC Wilmington, creates site-specific installations involving brightly colored monofilament wire that she strings across spaces. She designed her piece “Burst” around the front window of Ross Gallery I, an area usually used to frame and showcase art hanging in the gallery. When visitors look through the window, they will see little: a few lines and a little color. The whole of the work cannot be experienced without going into, and interacting with, the altered space. Steele encourages guests to walk in, look up, sit down, move through, look around and find their place.
Kyle Worthy
While Steele abstracts physical space, Kyle Worthy abstracts memories tied to place in his photographs. In “Anyone’s Ghost,” Worthy presents a series of landscape photographs that are both highly specific and nonspecific at the same time. Blurred images taken from a variety of locations are manipulated, toyed with and blended. He then infuses them with anonymity so they become relevant to all viewers, sparking remnants of our own distant memories tied to place.
