Artist: Courtney Hoskins

Courtney Hoskins' works involve seemingly mundane items- plastic wrap, dish soap, Scotch tape, etc. However, one would never be able to identify these objects in her finished work. Using special optical techniques, Hoskins reveals unimaginable complexities in everyday objects.

Using this technique, Hoskins creates collages, photographs and films. Using precision tools, Hoskins carefully assembles the pieces in their small configuration and often photographs or films the result. The photographs are reproduced on a large scale to reveal the subtle play of light and shadow revealed by the polarizing filters. These works are true photographic representations of the original assemblages and have not been digitally altered in any way.

Courtney Hoskins is also world-renowned for her abstract film and video works which have been featured in many major festivals. The pieces are both silent and contain original sound. Her work is available on VHS and DVD through her website.

The artist's hope is to awaken the senses to the hidden beauty found in all things.
