Lori Nix’s work is featured in “Home: Shelter and Habitat in Contemporary Art” at the Bedford Gallery at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek, California. Other artists include Hannah Chalew, Todd Hido, Dean Monogensis, and Tracey Snelling, among others.
“Home” investigates the role that home, habitat, and environment play in our modern lives. From traditional notions of the hearth, to mobile, alternative, and eco-conscious abodes, this exhibition will address the way our interpretation of habitat has shifted over the past century. Works in the show investigate everything from interiors and abstract concepts of what makes a home, to scenes of devastation and abandonment. Artists completely deconstruct the four walls we build around ourselves, producing art that is playful, surreal, familial and at times, disturbing.
