"Aesthetic Quality of the Blur"

Opening Reception with the Artist
Saturday, September 17, 2011
6:00 - 8:00 pm

Exhibition through October 15

In her latest addition to an ongoing series Sojourn in Seasons: Sketching with Light Amongst Trees Eisenberg engages a vision that is both revealing and obscured. Exhibition title Bokeh or in Japanese the term for the "aesthetic quality of the blur" is effective in relating to the work on levels deeper its appearance.

What enchants in the work also frustrates- our delight in delicate depictions of spring and summer foliage also inspires a desire to read the image with clarity, to bring beauty to focus. Images were made with an oversized pinhole lens chosen with the intention of capturing a blurred vision that distorts the recognizable. Knowledge of the artis' inspiration enhances our understanding- the work began in reaction to her father's loss of vision and memory. We look at the pieces anew with profound reverence. We find elegance and joy in the work. We feel thankful for what we do have and discover a renewed desire to take pause, to appreciate the simple things in life.
