Review: Eliot Porter at Scheinbaum & Russek

Posted By Administration, Friday, March 29, 2013
Updated: Thursday, December 19, 2013

In the Realm of Nature

Exhibition held in honor of the new publication, In the Realm of Nature, by Paul Martineau of the J. Paul Getty.


For Eliot Porter nature was spiritual, it was necessary, elemental, and fundamental to the wellbeing of man. The wilderness was his cathedral; as a child he would explore fields and climb trees, and as an adult his adventures would take him further to Glen Canyon in Utah, Maine, Baja California, the Galápagos Islands, Antarctica, East Africa, and Iceland. Porter never lost his sense of wonder for the world he found around him and his works show appreciation and patience. Infused with seductive color of the dye transfer process the prints are vivvid, clean, and alive. Scheinbaum & Russek's selection of images is small but succinct. It includes prints from the 1930's to the early 1960's and touches on classic themes for Porter, including birds, trees, slot canyons, and details of nature. Also included is an unusual subject- a portrait of Georgia O'Keeffe. The intimacy of this show allows for more intentioned viewing. We feel the true pulse of nature in images that freeze the flight of a hummingbird or perfectly frame an Arctic Tern. We hear our own footsteps shuffle through the golden September leaves in Yellow Aspens and feel enthused at the discovery of a Savannah Sparrow's Nest. The power in Porters work comes from the transmission of nature's energy into still frames in both charged and mundane moments. These works continue to move and inspire us not only to feel a passion for nature but to seek harmony with it.

Exhibition & Artist's Reception: Thierry Cohen at Danziger Gallery

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 28, 2013
Updated: Thursday, December 19, 2013

Darkened Cities

Opening Reception:
Thursday, March 28th, 2012

Exhibition Dates: March 28 - May 4, 2013


In this series of photographs of Therry Cohen we believe we see a starry night over cities, but it is exactly the reverse. These are the skies we do not see.

These photographs are a composite images, but are quite the intentioned creations. The artist does not just borrow any segment of sky to mesh with his cityscapes, rather travels to another location- somewhere remote- that rests on the same latitude as his intended city. The artist trekked to the deserts most notably, including the Atacama and Mojave deserts. Using the same angle and careful marking of place, Cohen manages to reveal to us the sky as it would be in Rio, New York, Shanghai, Tokyo, Hong-Kong or Paris. The effect is delightful and poignant- if the cities of man did not disrupt the celestial beauty of the night sky with their light and atmospheric pollution what grand evening views they would have. The resulting frames are magical.

Closing Reception & Book Signing: Bertrand Carrière at Stephen Bulger Gallery

Après Strand

Saturday, May 4
2:00 - 5:00 pm

Artist Talk:
Saturday, May 4
1:00 - 2:00 pm

The clean cool frames of Québecoise photographer Bertrand Carrière are familiar for good reason. We have not seen these works before, but still they seem familiar; it is the aesthetic and approach; it is a philosophy of seeing. If we could not put our finger on it at first sight, then the title hands it over-Après Strand, After Strand. Paul Strand's work is now iconic and his position and stake in the media of photography itself is solid. Carrière's work helps us remember a past as it claims the present.

Carrière has touched on a series of work that is close to him while unknown to many others. Strand took two trips to the Gaspé Peninsula, Carrière's territory, in 1929 and 1936. On these trips, the first dedicated to landscapes and the second to portraits, Strand developed what he defined as the essential character of place. Carrière too works with attention to the social landcape and balances this vision for us through vernacular architecture and humanistic portraits. There is careful attention in this series to maintain both a dedication to history and to individuality. We trace the paths of Strand, we do not walk in his footsteps.

The Gaspésie that Strand documented no longer exists, and one day too no longer will the frames of Carrière; each photographer's work holds the sense of lingering lifestyle. The region is remote and harsh, but the inhabitants soldier on working to keep communities alive in the face of difficult socioeconomic conditions. These works are truly old and new; they nod to their master and claim contemporary stake for the philosophy of Strand's visual approach.

Screening: Jerry Uelsmann & Maggie Taylor

Posted By Administration, Saturday, March 23, 2013
Updated: Thursday, January 2, 2014
This is not photography

Saturday, April 20, 2013
5:30pm, Admission is Free
Tipton Hall, Santa Fe University of Art & Design

Co-sponsored by Verve Gallery and Scheinbaum & Russek, Ltd.

 

The recently released full feature film on the artistic work of the husband and wife duo. Both Maggie Taylor and Jerry Uelsmann create layered dreamscapes that push the limits of the photographic media. The film touches on both the artists' processies and inspirations. Also discussed is the unique bond shared by the creative couple and what it is like to share a creative life.

Uelsmann works with a traditional darkroom and at times up to 12 enlargers to craft and shape his imagery. Uelsmann's work has been much celebrated; in 1967 he received a guggenheim Fellowship and in 1972 a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. He is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain, a founding member of the Society of Photographic Education, and a former trustee of the Friends of Photography. Uelsmann's photographs are in the permanent collections of many museums worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Chicago Art Institute, International Museum of Photography at the George Eastman House, Victoria and Albert Museum, Bibliothèque nationale de France, National Museum of American Art, Moderna Museet, National Gallery of Canada, National Gallery of Australia, Museum of Fine Arts (Boston), National Galleries of Scotland, the Center for Creative Photography, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, and National Museum of Modern Art (Kyoto).

Taylor has used the digital darkroom- computers, scanners replace the camera and images emerge through layers. This new means to produce, this digital art has been well received by many notable institutions including the Center for Creative Photography, George Eastman House, Harry Ransom Center, High Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Princeton University Art Museum, Cleveland Museum of Art, Fogg Art Museum, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, and Santa Barbara Museum of Art.
