San Diego Art Institute says
SDAI’s next exhibition, "Sticks of the Sun, Ashes of the Night," centers around the tenuous relationship between human beings and the biosphere, as illustrated through the photographic work of artists Rebecca Webb and Jesse Burke.

Burke’s images are derived from a series of road trips taken with his daughter—larks meant to impart his idea of an essential education: one that revolves around appreciation and respect for the landscapes they encountered, and gestures toward a worldview that integrates the mutual dependency of human beings and our surroundings.

Webb’s ambivalence toward her adolescent son’s over-reliance on electronic media serves as the impetus to her interrogation into the ostensible dichotomies of technology and nature. Using the technology of the camera, Webb unearths a fabled narrative in which her son’s mediation between these margins opens a gateway to a different kind of intimacy with our tools, our environment, and each other.

Sticks of the Sun, Ashes of the Night asks viewers to re-conceptualize anachronistic notions of what it means to commune with—and be encompassed by—nature, directing our focus toward the nuances of our interconnectivity.

The opening reception will take place at San Diego Art Institute, 1439 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92101 from 6-8pm on Saturday, January 16th. The exhibition will run until Sunday, February 7th. For more information, call SDAI at 619.236.0011 or visit
