We are excited to announce that this month’s artist is …. Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels!!!

Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels is a Tennessean-Australian-American based in Brooklyn. From discarded housing materials, she makes large-scale construction installations that are submerging environments built into existing architecture with a sense of placelessness, awkward entrances, and inviting nooks. Her work abstracts structures made up of layers and layers of other like structures, and explores how specific qualities of constructed environments create experiential constructs.

Her large-scale installations are most often shown in abandoned or unlikely locations; her work has recently been exhibited in the New Orleans Music Box Project and with her collective Rabid Hands in a former Brooklyn convent and a crumbling machine warehouse in Detroit, as well as at Clocktower Gallery in NY and Parse Gallery in New Orleans.

Here is the first release by Serra!
