Skye Gilkerson creates poignant conceptual projects across a range of media, including sculpture, installation, photography, film and collage. With a sense of wonder, tenderness, and humor, her work encourages a contemplation of the tension between time and timelessness, place and placelessness, and the human and universal scale.
-Jodi Lundgren, Curator
