Meryl Truett

Artist Statement Submitted 2016

My current large format series addresses the marginalization and evolving social terrain of American regional ideology. From urban transition to the disappearing rural individuality of the landscape, I seek to capture a personal vision of place. Barren scenery, decaying signage and vernacular architecture have become a symbolic part of the rural south’s visual culture. I photograph these and other indigenous images not to mock them, nor to reveal disdain for them, but rather to evoke a melancholic memory.
