BIO
Carla Gannis is an artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She holds an MFA in painting from Boston University and is the recipient of several awards, including a 2005 New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Grant in Computer Arts. She has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. Most recently she collaborated with poet Justin Petropoulos on a transmedia book, installation and net art project entitled <legend> <legend> (Jaded Ibis Press and Transfer Gallery, 2013). She is Assistant Chair of The Department of Digital Arts at Pratt Institute.

Gannis's work examines the narrativity of 21st century representational technologies and questions the hybrid nature of identity, where virtual and real embodiments of self diverge and intersect. She feels akin to past and contemporary artists and writers who uncannily deconstruct rigid notions of reality and perception.

<p><font color="575757" size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica,
sans-serif"><b><strong><em>Multiple
Partners</em></strong> </b>is an exhibition that explores the range
of
connections a female artist can find with one and one and one and
one
of her male artist contemporaries. Sociological or biological
factors
may influence women to express themselves differently from men, but
other
far-ranging factors, from our shared humanity to similar tastes in
literature,
music, and science, produce commonalities and linkages in our
creative
output. Without expectations for a conclusive sum total, this show
explores
the possibility that artists of both genders can look to the same
influences
and belong to the same history. </font></p>
