BRITTANY POWELL PARICH Brittany Powell Parich (Djerassi, 2013) is interested in domestic items, the everyday, food, humor, Oregon and products. She looks for the place where the mass-produced meets the personalized, and employs methods of inven- torying, making products, and setting up environments — she has rendered a Mexican restaurant in contact paper, immortalized people’s cell phone photos in watercolor paintings and embroidered Ikea furniture assembly instructions onto a quilt. Her exhibitions include the Honolulu Museum of Art and the Interisland Terminal, Honolulu, HI; Frenzy and Disjecta, Portland, OR; the Boise Art Museum; Kimball Art Center, Park City, UT; Sun Valley Center for the Arts, Ketchum, ID; and the Monty Art Space, Antwerp, Belgium. She received an MFA from California College of the Arts, San Francisco, and a BFA from Oregon State University. “The landscape at Djerassi was a collaborator with me. It ignited ideas and provided raw materials and backdrops for many projects. I completed one permanent installation of wire sculptures in the windows of the old barn, one temporary installation of moss patterns plucked into the oak trees on the hill trail, a set of photos of pine needle patterns, and arrangements of fast food in the forest. The place touched everything that I did.” Above: Pine Needle Patterns, 2013, Pine needles on paper at Djerassi, 4’ x 6’ Right: Moss Patterns, 2013, Site-specific installation on the Hill Trail at Djerassi, Varying sizes Far right: Moss Patterns (detail)
