Blane De St. Croix
October 30 – December 5, 2009
Blane De St. Croix’s work articulates humankind’s desire to take command over the earth — alluding to conflicts with ecology, politics and ourselves. The work also reveals conflicts with nature, while asking us to reflect on our precarious relationship with our surroundings.
This exhibit will consist of both sculpture and drawings. Included will be works created in the past few years exploring the forest fire as subject and new work created especially for the gallery reflecting upon the subliminal landscape imagery of the Florida Everglades and how it ties into encroachment, conservation and restoration.
Blane De St. Croix was born in Boston Massachusetts; he received an M.F.A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and a B.F.A. from Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, Massachusetts. Previously, De St. Croix was a visiting Assistant Professor at Whittier College, Whittier, California, and currently he is an Associate Professor at Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, Florida. He lives and works in both South Florida and Brooklyn, New York.
