Artist's Opening Reception: Richard Renaldi at Bonni Benrubi Gallery

Posted By Administration, Thursday, April 17, 2014
This Grand Show

Exhibition Dates:  April 17 - June 7, 2014

Opening with the Artist:
Thursday, April 17
6:00 - 8:00 pm

Benrubi Gallery has had a major push for Richard Renaldi as of late; with a book signing and exhibition for earlier work, Touching Strangers, associated with Aperture Foundation at the aipad fair and ongoing at their gallery.  This exhibition at Benrubi Gallery features work from Renaldi's series This Grand Show.  These works become a meditation on the narrative power of pure landscape photography and with them we reflect on the vision naturalist John Mur had for America.  

Renaldi's works are smooth, light is painterly, but these frames are not always so grand.  Something manmade but crumbling often interrupts the frame.  Structures symbolic and vacant and personal objects speak to occupants and owners.  A cake in a shop window waits for no one, an old Igloo ice cream truck waists away, an organ rots on a street corner and perhaps most poetic, a sand castle awaits the rising tide.
