Local Artist, Mikayla Whitmore "currently works as a staff photographer for the Las Vegas Weekly, Las Vegas Sun, and The Sunday at Greenspun Media Group. She graduated with a BFA in Photography from the University of Nevada Las Vegas in 2010."
Every day our mind is recording and cataloging new information and experiences – at the same time old memories start to fade, corrupt, and blend together. As such, memories can no longer be safeguarded in precious photographic objects. We can longer distinguish between reality and the self-indulged perception we form from piecing things together. Instead, images act as palimpsests where memory and identity are constantly being lost. Photography too functions as passages of ancient manuscripts where the ink of words bleeds onto the next page to the point of loosing any trace of narrative. The art of Mikayla Whitmore seeks to fill the gaps in time where words become forms, and where photographic reminiscences turn into abstract images.
We are so excited to see more of Mikayla's work at Small Space Fest: June 20th, 2016.
Visual Art will remain installed until July 21st.
