Cig Harvey, Deep Bay, Self Portrait, North Shore Bermuda
Her vividly colored images and seductive vocabulary combine to suggest dreamlike narratives informed by sensations of touch, taste, sight, sound, smell, and memory. Harvey draws inspiration from her life in Maine, and the work is on the one hand autobiographical, and on the other, a magical window onto a familiar and living landscape.

Cig Harvey, Scout in the Blizzard, 2017
The exhibition is drawn from a selection of Harvey’s photographic projects from the past ten years, and refigured into an arrangement that privileges the feeling of life experience.
