Fireflies by William Larson at Gitterman Gallery has received some critical attention in the Daily Serving, the New Yorker, and Collector Daily. Larson's work challenges the limits of a photograph. Larson was interested in integrating time into still images. His process was unusual but certainly rooted the work to time. It involved a cutting edge device in its day, the Teleprinter. The teleprinter, an early fax machine, could transmit images and texts onto carbon-based paper over telephone line. Larson combined dissimilar images and added printing interruptions and multiple- transmissions. His resulting electronic drawings were layered to create, as Larson put it, "the imperfect operations of memory or dreams" (Gitterman Gallery Press Release).
On view through July 2, 2015
