February 12 – March 5, 2014 at Brookhaven College in the Studio Gallery
Leigh Merrill constructs photographs of the urban landscape positioned between reality and fantasy. Digitally reassembled from photographs of the quotidian structures or urban life, the constructed character of the photographs reiterated the constructed, fragmentary built environment. Leigh Merrill received the B.F.A. from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM and the M.F.A. from Mills College. Merrill’s work has been a part of exhibitions throughout the United States including the Phoenix Art Museum, the diRosa Art Preserve, The Lawndale Art Center, Women and Their Work Gallery, the Tremaine Gallery, and the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art. Merrill was a part of the 2011 Fotographia Festival Internazionale di Roma at the Galleria Gallerati in Rome, Italy. Her work is part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Texas Tech University, the City of Phoenix, the California Institute of Integral Studies and private collections.
