New Yorker Review: Lars Tunbjörk at Amador Gallery

Lars Tunbjörk

Through November 19, 2011


The clean and crisp frames of Lars Tunbjörk have a unique edge of humor. The exhibition draws work from three book projects- Landet Utom Sig (Country Beside Itself), Home, and Office. Alone each frame touches on the individual and the collective, the personal and the generic. Weather sunbathers beside subdivisions of cookie-cutter row homes, stockbrokers climbing over paperwork, accountants sitting on desk-top, or lawyers under a table in a sea of papers it is without question that the subjects are the most interesting part of the image. As a whole Tunbjörk's work builds to question even critique our post-industrial world that is consumed by commercialism.

Idilios or in Spanish, Romances, is the title of Spanish artist Marta Soul's series and current exhibition at Kopeikin Gallery. The series is bold and playful and explores concepts of identity, sexuality, and appearance through "happily ever after" moments. The kiss signifies something of a hollywood or fairytale ending, but Marta Soul's work contradicts the typical narrative in scenes where the same woman is caught in romantic scenes with different men.

We never know the woman's identity or see her face, but her red hair is unmistakable; in a jewelry store, elegant ballroom, the corridor, a golf course it is her the woman with the red hair. Always something about her has changed to fit her environment- her clothing, her pose, her gest, but still it is her. The model is a friend and actress of the photographer and works as an alter-ego to engage the fantasy of the kiss and chalenge idealism behind it.

Nearly a quarter century after its frist release Keith Carter's From Uncertain to Blue is as resonant as ever. The project began in 1986 with a road trip- Carter and his wife set out to celebrate their ten-year wedding anniversary and found inspiration for a project that would invigorate his fruitful photographic career.

The Texas road trip afforded a chance encounter with Horton Foote, playwright and National Medal of Arts winner; a spark of inspiration was lit in the photographer. Carter trained his eye to see exotic in the every day, and the story of small towns across Texas were captured in single frames, one photograph for each town. The project continued for nearly a year; and what Carter recorded in image, his wife Patricia noted in word. The names of the towns like Blessing, Earth, Happy, Hoard, Lovelady, Sweet Home and Welcome seem strange and out of place. The images captured are direct and powerful and the publication that came of the project gained national and international attention.

The new publication has some special features, including a new cover image, detailed travel journal, essays, and contact sheets that let us see into the mind of the photographer.

The works of Laurence Aberhart have a presence that shine through the often vacant scenes. We feel a sense of nostalgia for good times past and almost watch life drain and time pass through points of once budding promise.

There is something ageless to the work that evokes the sensation we have been transported to another time and place. The realization that we haven't is truly strange. We can rationalize portions of the work, some of the earlier works, fromt he late 1980's for example. We want to believe that distress and economic hardship came and went, tragically leaving some behind to be swallowed back into the landscape. As we continue to look we want to take the time reference with us, and are surprised perhaps by some that are taken more recently, 2010. These are harder to take, even though the news and market constantly reminds us of our delicate state. The shots of small town America seem to reveal stagnation, abandonment, but also the unwavering American hope in- America.

What does our confrontation of these works reveal about our beliefs, our dreams, our vision of America? The work does not allow us to deny what today is more real than ever- the dream of America isfading. Have we missed it all these years? Can we come to believe it now?

America: a fable is truly poignant and memorable.
