Forest Through The The Trees at The Fabric Workshop and Museum
Cameron Gainer.



PHILADELPHIA, PA.-The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) presents Forest Through The The Trees, an exhibition by artist Cameron Gainer. Standing over six feet tall, Gainer’s Forest Through The The Trees is a life-size embodiment of Bigfoot as captured in the famous Patterson-Gimlin Film. He has recreated frame 352 of the film, which shows the creature in its iconic mid-stride glance at the camera, as a three-dimensional sculpture. It is made from a steel and fiberglass skeleton, covered with faux fur and modeling compound, and has a pair of piercing glass eyes. It is also meant to be a “photo-op prop” that allows the viewer to be a participant in the project as re-creator of the original film footage or perpetuator of it as a supposed hoax. The artist will be lecturing and presenting video at the opening reception on February 1st at 6:00 p.m., and he will be available for questions afterward. The event is free and open to the public.

About the Artist - The New York based Cameron Gainer is an emerging artist and a graduate of the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. He works with photo, video, and multiple media in his sculptures. The Bigfoot sculpture on display at The Fabric Workshop and Museum was originally shown at Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens in 2006. It is one of three public commissions exploring myth and urban legend, which also include a sculpture of Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster for the Salt Marsh Nature Preserve in Brooklyn, and an upcoming project at the University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum.
