"Diluvial" is a site-specific installation at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, NH by Cristi Rinklin. The work transforms the Currier's Putnam Gallery into an imaginary landscape of nature's beautiful and terrifying - and inescapable - forces. Rinklin, inspired by depictions of the New England landscape from the 1800s such as Jasper Francis Cropsey's "An Indian Summer Morning in the White Mountains" shows us a landscape view through a contemporary lens, framed by the all-hours media spectacle of nature's overwhelming capabilities. This video shows the time-lapse process of installing Rinklin's encompassing work of art. The transparent window panels were printed with an imaginary landscape frieze, and the hand painted wall murals and wall paper panels depict an airy landscape scene overtaken by forms that recall billowing clouds and unleashed waterfalls. "Diluvial" is on view at the Currier from June 9, 2012 - September 9, 2012. To learn more visit CURRIER.ORG.
