The design of the new, luxury apartment building, Modera Buckman, is…modern, of course. To match the modern, urban feel, the client needed some contemporary artwork to coordinate and compliment it, but also to create a sense of place and community to make the place feel like home.

RESULTS: I worked closely with the art consultant, to create something brand new. She wanted a connection to the community but wanted something organic, street level, and more personal. The clients didn’t want major landmarks, but something more aimed at daily life in Portland. It was a joy to go back into my photography and pull out imagery of urban elements that are just part of daily life…and then I was inspired to walk the SE Portland neighborhoods where Modera Buckman is located and capture more imagery. As I pulled a series of images together of objects, signs, buildings, pets, cars, bicycles, etc…I formed a collage that had a feeling of walking through a Portland neighborhood. We wanted an organic look, so I dug deep into my fine art paper collection and started experimenting with combining paper collage with my urban imagery. It was a great fit adding color and texture. This was a wonderful experience to combine my photography with a handmade application.

SIZE: Two panels were produced. Each is 8 x 4 feet with a 2″ depth.

Capturing the Spirit of Community – Exploring the creativity, history, and culture that evolves in urban centers.

Beth Kerschen is a multi-disciplinary artist using photomontage to create cityscapes that reflect on community, culture, and urban life. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Colorado College in Colorado Springs, as one of the first students to exhibit digitally created art. Beth moved to Boston, MA to work for Polaroid then worked for ten years as a graphic designer with several creative firms in Boston, eventually moving to Portland, Oregon in 2008. Since that time, Kerschen has committed her life to capturing vast urban landscapes into one tangible image. She uses her photography, design, and illustration skills to turn urban landscapes into fantastical images filled with meaning and nostalgia. Her art explores and reflects on connections held by the landmarks, buildings, signage, graffiti, people, and events that are reflected in urban life and urban culture. She was awarded a Professional Development Grant from RACC (‘15) and a public art installation commission at the Portland International Airport (‘16). Her work has been held in a number of corporate and city collections, including two terms in the Mayor of Portland’s office. She has done a number of installation pieces for numerous residential buildings bolstering local identity. Clients include JupiterNEXT Hotel, the City of The Dalles, Heathman Hotel, Downtown Oregon City Assoc., Port of Portland, IFC (Portlandia t.v. series), REACH Community Development, Weird Portland United, and Facebook.
