Terri Warpinski Artist Lecture


On Thursday evening, Terri Warpinski presented on her journey as an artist and professor. She discussed her beginnings in painting and collaging with her previous works and her transition into photography. Warpinski walked us through this documentary style series entitled “Surface Tension: Three Landscapes of Division” and her travel experiences in putting this collection together. The series focuses on the Israeli/Palestinian border, the U.S./Mexico border, and the Berlin Wall. She shares that in her findings some people feel protected by these borders and others feel insulted. Warpinski explains that in her upbringing, she never imagined the Berlin Wall coming down and has hopes that like it, other formal divisions of land will come down. Before the occurrence of September 11th, there were 12 land division walls world wide. Today, over 60 walls stand.
