Skye Gilkerson's work in drawing and site-specific installation explores places and objects from everyday life that are often unassuming and easily overlooked. Subtle, yet often labor intensive processes serve to unfold our awareness of our surroundings and destabilize familiar structures. Space, time, light, and language, as well as household dust and the pages of a newspaper all become the materials for this exploration. Skye has been in over 20 shows including Paperworks, juried by Maura Heffman, Exhibition Manager at the Whitney Museum of Art. In 2008, Skye was an artist-in-residence with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and this spring she will be an artist-in-residence at Anderson Ranch in Snowmass, Colorado. Her work is in the Robert F. Pfannebecker Collection, the Bethel University Collection, and numerous personal collections. Skye received her MFA in 2009 from Cranbrook Academy of Art.
