26 February – 11 March, 2021
The Art Base is pleased to present clouds dissipate, an exhibition of multidisciplinary works by Miami-based artist Sue Montoya. clouds dissipate features photographic imagery of landscapes with drywall, wood, and barro de Oaxaca to create unique constructions that highlight the connection between place, materials, and memory.
In clouds dissipate, Sue Montoya revisits objects and landscapes from places in her imagination and past. She explores the transient memory of the mountainous Honduran landscape, and then explores like forms found in the temporary man-made mounds in Miami. The images mounted onto slabs of drywall– decaying as they move through the world, are paired with a series of photographs and ceramic works. In the photographic works, she documents the lush foliage, earth, and bright sky of springtime around Valle de Angeles and Tatumbla. The earth grounds the photographs and the gypsum, wood, and clay–as a return to places from the man-made to the rural. Montoya seeks “to reveal the economic, political and historical factors that contribute to the exploitation, allocation, and perception of people and land.”
