Thin Deep Ribbon: Scott Rankin

Exhibition Website

Jan 6 2017 - Feb 25 2017

The McLean County Arts Center presents Scott Rankin’s exhibition Thin Deep Ribbon – photography of the sky in the Armstrong Gallery.

For several years Scott Rankin has been photographing the sky--zooming up from the ground or floating within from an airplane window seat. As a visual artist and pilot drawn to the sky’s constantly changing depths, colors, forms, and sensations, Rankin has taken tens of thousands of still images and videos. In this small selection, he presents clouds creating abstracted space. Exploring flatness and depth, scale and light, ambiguous shape and human recognition, each unique image surprises and inspires awe. 

Scott Rankin is a Professor of Art at Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois. He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards and his work has been published and exhibited worldwide.
