Jeremy J. Starn at Noelke Gallery
EMERGING ARTIST EXPLORES GLOBALIZATION THROUGH SATELLITE ART IN HOPES OF ENGAGING OTHER YOUNG ARTISTS
Jeremy J. Starn showcases his new series of satellite images, titled “Mirrors In The Sky”, which aims to engage and empower young artists in northwest Connecticut. From oil fields in Saudi Arabia to deforestation in Brazil, his work explores the most visible impacts of globalization and development. Using uniquely crafted satellite images he investigates the marks of human activity on the planet, with a focus on natural resource management, industrial agriculture and climate change.
“Mirrors In The Sky” opening reception is Friday, November 27th 2015, from 5–8pm at the Noelke Gallery in Torrington Connecticut. The show runs until January 21st, 2016.
The painterly, and sometimes abstract, satellite images of human activity are both astonishing and thought-provoking. The artist remarks, “I hope that when people see my work they step back and reflect on the unprecedented global development that humans have achieved.” Through this global perspective, Jeremy J. Starn hopes to bring inspiration and empowerment to the young artist community in northwest Connecticut.
Jeremy J. Starn earned a BFA in Photography from Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge MA in 2014. After graduating he worked for one year in northeast Thailand with a community rights organization. This experience gave him a new outlook on how strong communities can support the health of individuals and their environments. He currently resides in his hometown, Barkhamsted Connecticut.
