Susan kae Grant Night Journey: Theatrical Realms of the Whimsical & Tragic
Through January 11, 2013
Artists' Opening Reception:
Friday, November 15
5:00 - 7:00 p.m
Three simultaneous exhibitions of gallery artists Susan kae Grant, Kamil Vojnar, and Krzysztof Wladyka challenge the belief in photography as fact, as anything true or concrete, or as anything real as we would find it in the world. In the freedom of exploring the imagined, however, these artist's reveal secret truths that hide in the shadows, in the memories, and in the haunted crevices of our imagination.
For kae Grant shadows are metaphors used to explore dreams and memory; childhood tales particularly seem a source for inspiration. The stories seem both open and familiar, and at the tip of our tongue are tales about the depicted cages, nightgowns, fawns and ferries. The spaces of Vojnar are, as he says- drawn from "elsewhere." Elsewhere seems to be someplace between premonition and memory. The space crystalized in Vojnar's frames is haunted by layers of truth and memory that filter through each other in an enchanting but somber sepia haze. In Animalies we learn to see animals as more than creatures of the Earth but as symbols, or at least they seem to be in the work of Wladyka. These digital renderings may even be viewed as the art of protest in the artist's view, and a reminder that money is more important than the soul's needs for too many.
These artists lift the veil on the mind's eye to reveal enchanting even playful images that challenge as much about the reality of the photographic image as they invent.
