Christine Chin: Invasive Impressions
Ithaca-based artist Christine Chin creates works that explore the evidence of climate change and its impact on the environment. Invasive Impressions presents two bodies of Chin’s work: her Invasive Species Cyanotypes and Native Species Cyanotypes. Chin’s Invasive Species series uses the cyanotype process to document invasive species in the Finger Lakes Region. She uses actual specimens, collected herself or through collaborations with organizations that work to monitor and control invasive species, including the Finger Lakes Institute and the Finger Lakes Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management. The Native Species series focuses on species that coexist in ecosystems affected by invasive species. Shown together, these works draw attention to the relationships that form between species competing for the same ever-dwindling resources.
Christine Chin: Invasive Impressions is part of the Everson CNY Artist Initiative, an exhibition program that celebrates the multi-faceted talents of regional artists. The CNY Artist Initiative is made possible with support from Terry and Bill Delavan.
