ROSEBURG, Ore., Feb. 9, 2023 – “Fluid Arrangements,” the work of Southwestern artist Paho Mann, will be on display beginning February 13, in The Art Gallery at Umpqua Community College.
Mann, an associate art professor at the University of North Texas, creates his art by combining traditional photographic approaches with three-dimensional scanning to construct abstract arrangement scenes. Using hundreds of still photographs, the artist proceeds to build 3D models using photogrammetry software.
“I extract temporary files that were never meant to be seen by humans,” Mann said. “I then work with these files to create new, abstract compositions. The final images distort and reconstruct the original scene, providing fluidity and conversation between computer vision and human vision.”
Mann adds that his use of present and cutting-edge technologies to observe and transform the world is central to his investigation as an artist. The “Fluid Arrangements” collection will be on display at the UCC Art Gallery from February 13 through March 15, 2023. Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Admission is free.
