Tribute: Jerry Uelsmann at Robert Klein Gallery

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, January 18, 2012
Updated: Monday, January 6, 2014

Exhibition Dates: January 21 - March 3, 2012

The Vintage Jerry Uelsmann exhibition at Robert Klein Gallery is held in honor of and compliment to Uelsmann's exhibition at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem. Both exhibitions look at 50 years of work the unmistakable artist. While the museum show brings together a greater number of works, the Gallery exhibition is intimate and special, as the images on exhibition were drawn from the artists' personal collection.

Even today the vintage work strikes us with a seductive intrigue. Space, perception, and scale are toyed with, romance and fantasy are engaged, humor is often cutting. The seamless printing from multiple negatives chalenges even the most advanced digital manipulation, and Uelsmann has remained true to his technique. Each layer of the final frame adds meaning to the image. Though most images on exhibition are by now iconic, the power of the work is its continued ability to ignite and reignite inspiration, demand narrative, and leave room for shifts in the story.

Visit the museum show for an overview and the Gallery for the insider's look at particular favorites.
