Cortney Andrews Studio Visit Synopsis and Discussion Links.
During the Cortney Andrews’ studio visit on July 7th 2009 the group discussed her most recent body of photographs and a two channel video installation. This series of photographs included semi-narrative propositions focused on physiological and psychological tension as well as visual and optical disruption. The tension between the figures in the photos and their surroundings spurred discussion about the apparent difference in attitude within the domestic interiors and the landscape scenes in the series. The group also discussed ideas relating to scale, venue, surrogate surface, ambiguity in expression of emotion, desire, theatricality, and the duality of love and death.

    The subject of “surrogate surfaces” was discussed in relation to the settings where the figures are photographed. I came across this topic in an essay on Francesca Woodman in “Bachelors”, a book by Rosalind Krauss, in which she examines the work of 9 female artists’ explorations in surrealism from a feminist perspective.
