‘In the Distance’ Exhibition at UW Gallery 234

April 14, 2017

“In the Distance,” featuring Holly Wood’s journey through Taipei, Taiwan, intermixed with her experiences in Laramie, will be on display beginning Monday, April 17, in Gallery 234, located in the lower level of the University of Wyoming Union.

Presented by 7220 Entertainment, Wood’s work will be on display through Thursday, May 4. A reception is scheduled Tuesday, May 2, from 6-8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The idea for the exhibition came from a trip to Taipei that Wood took to explore and connect.

“From this journey, I developed a series of photos that merge together places thousands of miles apart,” says Wood, a UW graduate student. “These are photos taken there and here. There are familiar retreats in Laramie, veiled under and over by the sensuous elements of Taipei.”

For Wood, these photos allowed her to reimagine place and comfort, and to find her happy place.

“As a canvas for emotional change, film gave me the necessary space to detach from and recombine every element of the environment,” she says.

Wood aimed to create a narrative and compose a new setting with her work.

“In this series, I ask the viewer to nestle into each layer they see, look for a place to rest, and take a breath of air from somewhere familiar and somewhere far away,” she says.
