A native Oregonian, Agnes Field-artist/curator, has worked in NYC - New York University and SVA (School of Visual Arts), Italy - SACI (Studio Arts Center International) and residences in Finland-Arteles and Atlantic Center for the Arts, Florida. Her recent project (with two other artists) was Tidal Rock Project funded by PICA - Precipice Fund, Calligram Foundation and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. She is currently serving as Vice Chair of the nonprofit Astoria Visual Arts.
Most of my work comes from natural sources and found materials with references to reading/writing poetry. Nature is hardwired into our DNA and the connections are impossible to escape. Acknowledging our deep relationship to all living life, from plants to animals, restores the emotional and mental balance necessary to experience the vast beauty around us.
