Artists Statement on Reciprocity
After attending the same university at separate times, a mutual photography mentor insisted that the two of us needed to know one another. Our mentor, Mike Smith was absolutely correct and we immediately bonded through our love of the landscape, hiking, photography, and being adventurous, wild women. We have a mutual connection of understanding through the landscape. We influence each other by pushing the boundaries of photography through sculptural and conceptual forms.
Throughout the pandemic we have kept one another company via Zoom. Our virtual hangouts provide us with creative accountability and encouragement to get outside, make art, and stay sane. Additionally we have been communicating through photographs from our daily walks. We take turns sending a photograph and responding with another that has visual similarities. Although we live roughly 2,824 miles apart, we remain connected through the landscapes we walk through daily.
Artist Bio for Meg Roussos
Meg Roussos, b.1990 and raised in Southern Ohio, completed the Triple Crown hiking over 8,000 miles. Roussos’ artistic practice is cultivated from personal experiences in the wilderness. Her art requires trekking in the landscape via carrying her camera, dragging a treadmill, or methodically walking a hillside. Roussos works across multiple disciplines to allow her ideas to take form in traditional imagery, photographic artist books, documentation of land art, or videos. Her work has been included in exhibitions at the Blue Sky Gallery, in Portland, Oregon and Aff Galerie, in Berlin, Germany. Roussos received her BS from Ohio University, Athens, OH; and MFA from East Tennessee State University, TN. She is based in Bainbridge Island, WA.
