    by a sign he had seen while traveling through Alabama Appropriating the name he symbolized the Arkadelphia as an actual an ark which ultimately served in the pervious series as well as in Towards a 49th State as a metaphor of traveling through history In his new series the Arkadelphia makes the voyage to Alaska a state that has been romanticized throughout history as a place of challenging and heroic journeys in the unspoiled wilderness Aesthetically influenced by such artists as Alice Neel William T Wiley Edward Hicks and Roger Brown Deeds employs the process of thinking and creating simultaneously resulting in an image that is layered both physically and metaphorically Employing prints collage graphite paint and watercolor Deeds combines his expertise as a print maker with a more evocative and spontaneous application of additional materials directly to the surface of the final work This layering allows the artist to generate an alternative vision of a place or an event one generated by the encounter of history from the artist s own point of view Kip Deeds received a B F A from Tyler School of Art Temple University and an M F A from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign Deed has had solo exhibitions at Next Door Gallery Leland MI 2006 Samuel S Fleisher Art Memorial Philadelphia 2005 Hunt Gallery Webster University St Louis MO 2005 Wakeley Gallery Illinois Wesleyan University Bloomington IL 2004 Sykes Gallery Millersville University Millersville PA 2004 Hutchins Gallery The Lawrenceville School Lawrenceville NJ 2003 and The Blue Shirt Project Birmingham AL 2001 Among many other group exhibitions Deeds work has been featured most recently at The Boston Printmakers North American Print Biennial Boston University Boston MA 2007 International Print Center New York NY 2006 Perkins Center for the Arts Moorestown NJ 2006

    McHarg engages the subjects of geology cartography and land development as well the subject of landscape in the history of art on equal terms McHarg asks the viewer to question the impact of engineering and design on the environment while questioning the accepted formal conventions of landscape painting established in 19th century Romanticism From an exaggeration of perspective to the denial of perspective itself combined with flattened symbolic elements derived from cartography McHarg alters the landscape to become a material manifestation of the relations between humans and their environments and a product of the dialectic of biophysical environments and culture McHarg received a M A in Landscape Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania and attended the Studio for Advanced Studies from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Philadelphia McHarg also studied painting under the artist Osvaldo Romberg from 1998 to 2001 Recent selected exhibitions include Portraits Finalist in Juried Online Exhibition 2007 Digitations ARTROM Gallery Rome Italy 2006 The Post Modern Landscape Brad Cooper Gallery Tampa FL 2006 Just Paint ARTROM Gallery Online Exhibition 2006 The National Arts Club Online Exhibition 2006 Her work has been included at The Supper Club Rome Italy 2004 The White Box Philadelphia 2002
