LARGE-SCALE, SITE-SPECIFIC INSTALLATIONS
Public artworks designed with site specificity in mind
Megan Mosholder is an artist who operates in the real-world setting of the social-political landscape through site-responsive, sculptural installations. With the creation of three-dimensional drawings often enhanced by light, Megan emphasizes obscured elements within recognizable objects and correlates the symbolic with lived experience.
RE-IMAGINING THE REGULAR
Megan is intrigued by space. Specifically, the way certain landscapes can acquire meaning based on decisive events or how a site-specific installation can transform the white cube of the gallery. Most often, Megan conveys this fascination by creating compositions out of thousands of feet of white twine brushed with an invisible ultraviolet acrylic. As the sun sets or the light dims, the strings are illuminated with black light, mimicking twilight. The completed piece is a multi-sensory experience intended to engulf the visual senses and reawaken the simple intrigue of looking.
Megan Mosholder is a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design with a MFA in painting and has received numerous awards from institutions such as the Foundation for Contemporary Arts and the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences. Her diverse exhibition history includes an installation in Sydney, Australia (2017) a body of site-specific work that spoke of the lasting impression a fully immersive, multi-sensory artwork can leave on an audience. Megan currently resides in Atlanta, GA where she is a Professor at Kennesaw State University.
