Cristopher Cichocki, a former LQAF scholarship recipient, is currently artist-in residence at the Palm Springs Art Museum. This large scale multi-sensory art installation is bringing a lot of attention to the plight of the Salton Sea and focuses on his concern for the environment by using ‘radioactive’-like neon colors, dead fish, and found natural objects enhanced by synthetic materials.
Using a variety of media including painting, sculpture, video, sound and photography, his work highlights the creeping and increasingly urgent environmental problems that this valley faces. Water, desertification, environmental responsibility and awareness are concepts that Cristopher Cichocki explores in this popular exhibit.
The exhibit, which had been extended for a further month, is on view until October 27th, 2013.
