Artist Millee Tibbs gave us a closer look at two of her series: Air/Plains and Mountains + Valleys. Starting in 2010, she has been exploring and intervening upon the iconography of the American landscape with folds and creases on the surfaces of her work. Millee’s photographs were shown alongside works by Clay Mahn and Matthew Shelley at Art Market, San Francisco in April 2016.
“The world is big—photographs are small. When we photograph a landscape, we shrink it to fit onto the paper or into the screen. It also becomes metaphorically smaller—a souvenir that can be carried away.”
