Anthony Heinz May is a recent graduate from the Pratt Institute in New York. In the past year he has installed site specific works of art in various locations on the East Coast including Maryland, Vermont and New York. Within this time May has also been represented at Louisiana’s Masur Museum of Art, Duke University, the Governors Island Art Festival in New York City and is currently preparing for a residency at the Bush Creek Foundation of Arts in Wyoming in the spring of 2013. He has been involved in multiple exhibitions both nationally and internationally.
The installation at Three Pond Park will incorporate a new variation of May’s recent site-specific sculptural work. His work is presented through deconstruction of natural waste, specifically trees and tree appendages. By appropriating the natural forms and then rearranging them via modulated fragmentation, May refers to this process as "pixilation.” He creates three-dimensional assimilations of organization found in the two-dimensional digital image. The dispersion of these abstract installations in the natural environment translates like technological glitches in the physical landscape.
Visit May at Three Pond Park and watch as he brings to life an otherwise forgotten piece of nature.
