Travis Head makes drawings primarily rooted in the notion of souvenir. His works commemorate actual lived experiences and those that might be better described as virtual, in equal measure.
Head’s work is included in the Drawing Center’s Viewing Program and his drawings and artist’s books have been exhibited throughout the United States. Head has been awarded residencies at Yaddo, Ox-Bow, Vermont Studio Center, and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and he is a 2015 recipient of a Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Professional Fellowship. He holds an MFA from the University of Iowa and a BA from the University of Mary Washington and is Assistant Professor of Drawing at Virginia Tech’s School of Visual Art.
