The photographs and objects on view in transverse orientation mine the intersections of the found, collected, arranged, and made. Borrowing the forms of salvaged hand-crocheted doilies, Phelps-Lipton’s composite images of individual portraits of moth carcasses (re)orient us toward the organizational work of hands and nature. Other works in the show consider related aspects of collectivity, proximity, non-identity, and transformation, from the ubiquity and ephemerality of roadside wildlife to the tension between individuation and uniformity in American tweens.

Heather Phelps-Lipton is a photographer based in Delhi, NY.
