Artist's Reception & Gallery Talk: JEFF THOMAS at Stephen Bulger Gallery

Posted By Administration, Saturday, November 24, 2012
Updated: Friday, January 3, 2014

Resistance Is NOT Futile

Exhibition Dates: December 1, 2012 – January 19, 2013

Artist Talk:
Saturday, December 1
1:00 pm (RSVP as seating is limited)

Reception for the Artist:
Saturday, December 1
2:00 - 5:00 pm


The self-taught artist and independent curator Jeff Thomas came to photography after a life-changing car accident. The deeper he delved into the photographic record the more Thomas desired to fill a gaping hole in our-or his- visual history. As an Iroquois and member of the Six Nations reserve Thomas has a unique point from which to speak. As he turned to history and the visual record of Indigenous peoples he discovered an absence in two areas: images of Indigenous people by Indigenous people and images of city-dwelling Indigenous people. Thomas set out to create work that filled this void, creating images that chips away at stereotypes. In his latest work, Resistance Is NOT Futile, he has revealed that the cloth of the well-known photographic icon, Edward S. Curtis's work is actually somewhat threadbare. Thomas dedicated this work to considering what Curtus did NOT photograph. The works are not a contemporary mirror to Curtus, rather thoughtful meditations on the meaning of post-colonial Indanness.

Historic and contemporary images mingle with text. Any stereotypes that rise through Curtus's work are shattered as we see proven that traditions have endured and legacies have carried. Thomas, who self-identifies as an urban-Iroquois, proves through his work that nothing about the Indigenous people or culture has remained stagnant.

Artist Opening & Book Signing: Brigitte Carnochan at Verve Gallery

Posted By Administration, Friday, November 23, 2012
Updated: Friday, January 3, 2014
Floating World

Exhibition Dates: December 7, 2012 - January 19, 2013

Book Signing and Opening Reception:
Friday, December 7th

5:00 - 7:00 pm

 

Soft and sumptuous are the works of Brigitte Carnochan's new series Floating World. The print's earthy tones are as smooth and warm as the poetry that inspired them. Our eyes and emotions swim in the shifting palate that moves from deep coffee to creamy petal white. The Japanese handmade mulberry paper the prints are made on is well chosen and further enriches the velvet tones and the lush inspiration of the images- a book of Japanese poetry.

While rummaging through a New Jersey bookstore Carnochan happened upon a volume of tanka and haiku poems by Japanese women from the 7th - 20th centuries. With the help of Kenneth Rexroth and Ikuko Atsumi the book that had originally been published in Japanese in 1977 was converted to English. Carnochan was so touched by the passages that the imagery they called forth became a primary focus for her work. Inspiration sparked, she continued the work and created a text herself. Carnochan's photographic equivalents to Japanese poems were bound into book form that was published by Hudson Hills press and includes an introduction by John Wood. The words and their corresponding imagery, each of which bears the name of its author in calligraphy, revolve around a world of love and all its mysteries. There is love attained, love longed for, and love mourned for. All allusions to love are funneled through the imagery and metaphor of the natural world. The body plays as much a central a role as full and fallen blooms, quiet landscapes that expand or become elegantly fragmented. Changing seasons work as symbol, and the full moon is cast as a powerful yet illusive disk. The works are fleshy and full, enticing and true visual poetry.

Works to be exhibited and the text available for signing at the gallery on December 7th. A trade edition publication of Floating World to be available as well as a Limited Edition. The Limited Edition of 25 comes with a matching clamshell box and an exclusive 8x8" print titled, Let Us Set to Sea.

New Yorker Review: Joel Meyerowitz at Howard Greenberg Gallery

Posted By Administration, Monday, November 19, 2012
Updated: Friday, January 3, 2014

Joel Meyerowitz Part I
Through December 1


A full survey of the artist's work to be presented in two parts by Howard Greenberg Gallery. A leader in the color revolution of photography Joel Meyerowitz was a leading figure at a time when color photography was still fighting to be considered fine art; Meyerowitz in fact is due much credit for the acceptance of the media as a refined form of artistic expression. Viewers will find a number of black and white prints along side the more celebrated color works, but like any good survey these works desurve note and inclusion. Through them we can trace back to the beginning of Meyerowitz's career and forming practice.

The photographer began bold and determined. He came to the media after overseeing the work of another famed street photographer Robert Frank. Meyerowitz, an art director for an ad-agency at the time, was taken; when he returned to his office he quit. He wanted to be a photographer. It was his boss who, on the spot, gave Meyorwitz his first camera.

The artist went onto become one of the most celebrated photographer's of our time. His sense of color is full and helps move the work, depending on subject, from soft and painterly to bold and cinemagraphic. The frames are broad and sweeping and responsive to place. We see the artist shift his air according to his subject that in his 50-year career have ranged from street scenes to landscapes, portraits to major events. Meyorwitz was the only official photographer at ground zero in NYC.

Meyerowitz is a two-time Guggenheim fellow and a recipient of awards from both the NEA and NEH. He is a recent winner of the Royal Photographic Society's highest honor, the Centenary Award. This fall for his 50 years of work he will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Lucie Awards. His work is in the collections of many major museums, including The Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Museum of Fine Art, Boston.

A coinciding publication Taking My Time is also presented in dual volume and is a retrospective on the 50-year career of the artist. A view of work to date the limited edition text includes 580 color plates.


Stay tuned for Part II
December 7 - January 5th
