News from Brennan Studio
It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me and I wanted to fill you in on the latest.
For the last four years I’ve been involved with my first feature film, Agnes Martin Before the Grid, which premiered in Sept. 2016 in Taos. Jina Brenneman was story creator and we co-produced, while I was director and editor. Through grants and donations from our generous community of supporters our film is a success and in distribution. Last year was all about the film festival circuit and screenings from coast to coast. Check out the website here www.beforethegrid.org
I have just launched my new website www.brennanstudio.com. Check it out for the most up to date projects and photographs.
THE EDGE EFFECT:
re-Imaging the East Jemez Landscape
In Collaboration with the East Jemez Landscape Futures Project
April 21 - May 6, 2018
Open Daily 10:00 am-6:00 pm
OPENING DAY APRIL 21, 2018
Bandelier National Monument
at the Historic Fire Lookout Tower
As the first Artists-in-Residence for the East Jemez Landscape Futures Project, Shawn Skabelund and I will be creating The Edge Effect: re-imagining the East Jemez Lanscape, a site-specific, place-based installation inside the historic fire lookout at Bandelier National Monument, just outside Los Alamos, New Mexico.
The Edge Effect: re-Imagining the East Jemez Landscape explores the drastic impact of drought, fire and flooding to the land and the inhabitants throughout the east Jemez mountains. Our entire state is in drought condition and land managers throughout the state are anticipating an usually active wildfire season.
Visitors will be able to record their stories of changes in the East Jemez for the oral history archives. Although I will be on site for most of the exhibit, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to visit, to be sure that I will be at the historic fire lookout when you arrive.
Cochiti Mesa Canyon regrowth after fire and flooding.
Since 1996, the eastern flanks of the Jemez Mountains have been dramatically impacted by hotter droughts and fire severity far outside the historical range of variability. Over the past 20 years these major disturbances, driven by warmer temperatures and lower precipitation, have significantly impacted an area roughly 300,000 acres in size that crosses multiple land management boundaries including:
Bandelier National Monument, Valles Caldera National Preserve, Santa Fe National Forest, Santa Clara Pueblo, Cochiti Pueblo, San Ildefonso Pueblo, Jemez Pueblo, Los Alamos County, and Los Alamos National Laboratory.
