Artist Statement

Local artist Meredith Connelly is equally inspired by science, nature, and technology. Connelly illuminates her installations, often encasing them in everyday manufactured materials to reveal to their surprisingly organic qualities. Connelly shares, “Walking in nature is a foundational part of my creative process, and the design concepts behind Lights vividly came to life as I explored the wooded trails of the Whitewater Center. All encompassing, warm, and curious, this series of work taps into the innate connection human beings have with light and nature, bringing my work beyond the confines of manmade structures home to the spaces that inspired.”
