Solo exhibition featuring selected works from Pamela Pecchio’s Founder series.

January 31 – March 2, 2022

Combining photography and collage, Pamela Pecchio’s Founder series explores the conceptual parallels between the collage of materials in art-making, and the collage of stories that become history. While living in Charlottesville, VA, where Thomas Jefferson founded the University of Virginia, Pecchio became interested in the American Founding Fathers. Founder began as a response to traces of the Founding Fathers that marked the local landscape. Since Pecchio’s relocation to Boston, she has continued this work in the birthplace of the American Revolution. In Pecchio’s photographs, the past and the present collide through collaged images and materials, visually investigating photography, representation, and the foundational ideas of this country.
