Gary Emrich

Gary Emrich is a Colorado-based media artist/photographer with a 40 year exhibition record. His work resides in numerous private and public collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Denver Art Museum, the State of Colorado, and the University of Colorado Art Museum. As a fourth generation Coloradan, much of his art work addresses issues revolving around living in the West including water as a commodity and the heroic perception of the West. His work is media-based and combines artist generated and appropriated imagery; investigating how people create personal memories and collective histories from the countless objects and impressions they accumulate on a daily basis and why humans endow certain objects, events, and images with special meaning by preserving them.
