Emerging Frontier Fellowship: Summer Orr
April 5, 2019 - May 5, 2019
Summer Orr, Artist (Reno, NV)
Summer Orr is a 22-year-old multimedia artist working out of the Sierra Nevada foothills. She is primarily interested in creating animal forms that transfer between various mediums, often clay, paper or skin. These forms examine personal experience/memory but have
a penchant for the flora and fauna of the desert where she has lived most of her life. Predator/prey based imagery is often used in current works, playing with metaphor as well as exploring human social structures and power systems. With her work, Summer hopes to express/recreate/make sense of feelings of isolation, fear, and the grotesque and often grounding beauty of the natural world.
What about Green River & the Frontier Fellowship excites you most?
Making small ripples in a community outside of the one I have lived in my whole life, making connections through artistic means in a way that is important and examining how my work evolves when I am not in my comfort zone.
