Melinda Hurst Frye

Melinda Hurst Frye works within themes of ecology and place through photographs and scans of the Pacific Northwest landscape. By way of observation, experimentation, and slow investigation in the field, her imagery refers to the mysterious activity of urban and forested ecosystems layered with a sense of place. Analogous to scenes from a natural history museum, flora and fauna take center stage to illustrate that we are always tied to migration, evolution, and metamorphosis. Hurst Frye is an artist and educator based in Seattle, Washington. She holds an MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design, a BFA from Pacific Northwest College of Art, and has been featured on Humble Arts Foundation, Lenscratch, and WIRED Photo.
