In this solo exhibition, Brittany Metz employs moving image, video stills, cyanotype, altered magazines, and sculptural collage to explore the nature of our experience and perception through the interconnected concepts of time, ephemera, and present-mindedness. The bridge between these concepts spans their shared emphasis on impermanence and, accordingly, the importance of appreciating the present.
Gallery open hours:

Brittany Metz is an installation and new media artist creating work through self-awareness that encourages introspection and contemplation. The short cyclical nature of her video work is meditative, allowing the viewer to discover connections to the images presented through each cycle. This looping of multilayered video is somewhat disorienting, leaving the viewer questioning the time or place of her dreamlike spaces and most importantly, their place in this space.
Metz received a BA in Studio Art from Rollins College and an MFA in Emerging Media: Studio Art & the Computer from the University of Central Florida. She has exhibited nationally and internationally. Metz lives and works in Orlando, Florida where she is a professor of Art & Design. Courses taught include Sculpture, Mixed Media, Art History, Art Appreciation, Digital Arts and Design I/II with a significant focus on concept and narrative.
