Terri :: Warpinski

From her home base in Oregon Terri Warpinski travels the world to pursue her creative practice.
She is a Professor of Art at the University of Oregon and was a Fulbright Scholar in Israel 2000-2001.  Recent awards include an Individual Artist Fellowship (2014), two Career Opportunity Grants (2015, 2013) from both the Ford Family Foundation and the Oregon Art Commission. Her work has been shown in over 125 exhibitions including the Pingyao International Festival of Photography in China; the US Embassy in Jerusalem; Houston International Fotofest; Center for Photography at Woodstock; the University of the Arts Philadelphia, and San Francisco’s Camerawork.  Currently her solo exhibition Surface Tension is touring, after opening in Fort Collins, Colorado at the Lincoln Center in September 2014, it travels through 2017 with venues currently booked in Nebraska, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, New Mexico and Arizona.

Terri Warpinski creates imagery that reflects her reverence for the natural environment and her interest in the traces of human connection embedded in the landscape. An inveterate traveler, Warpinski has most often photographed in the desert environments of the United States and Mexico, as well as central and eastern Australia. In recent work she has been drawing on imagery from travel through the Middle East, Western Europe and China, while also continuing to address her home landscape from the coastal rainforest to the sage plain of the high desert. Helen A. Harrison of The New York Times has written of Warpinski: “She is especially attuned to the often subtle evidence of human impact on nature. . . . (Her work) invite(s) speculation about the secrets that may be revealed by close scrutiny and creative speculation.”
