"Inductive" at the Diboll Gallery

Loyola press release - March 5, 2006

The Collins C. Diboll Art Gallery Host “Inductive”

The Collins C. Diboll Art Gallery at Loyola University New Orleans will host a multi–media exhibit titled “Inductive” with art by Courtney Egan and Ann Schwab. The exhibit will run from March 9 – April 20, 2006, in the gallery located on the fourth floor of the J. Edgar and Louise S. Monroe Library. The exhibit is funded in part by a grant from the Arts Council of New Orleans.

On Thursday, March 9 from 5- 8 p.m., there will be a reception for the artists located in the gallery. The reception will be free and open to the public.

Egan and Schwab use digital photography, video, still and moving images to convey their concept of inductive reasoning, which begins with a set of observations to reach a general conclusion. Using media stereotypes, Egan’s work will focus on how our culture affects the individual mind. She is using video collages to display these effects on the individual self.

Egan chose this topic for her exhibit because she feels the images our society presents on a daily basis are manipulative reflections of ourselves. This interaction between real life and fantasy is the current focus of Egan’s work.

Schwab uses a mixture of photographic images and constructions that are made up of fragmented figurative, plant, and other natural forms to display a metaphorical response to physical and emotional injury. She challenges traditional photography through her use of alternative formats, materials and her manipulation of photographic images.
